What's the deal with mothproofed wool yarn?

I'd never heard of this and came across it at the wool shop I was at today. I may have some in my stash,not sure. Anyway,do I need to be concerned about picking this up and/or using it while pregnant?What is it treated with?I touched it at the wool shop..would I need to wash the baby hat I made that was in the box with my yarns??I'm just worried because it's obviously a pesticide if it's mothproof...any thoughts?

I don't know a lot about it but I don't think it's supposed to transfer to your skin.

I still wouldn't want it in my stash though.
