Holes in Aristocrat

It had been a few days since we used our wool soaker but when I put it on tonight I noticed a hole near one of the leg openings. Upon further inspection there were about four small holes here and there on my beloved cover. Two went all the way through and the others were through one layer of the knit and starting through the other. I've probably used the cover a couple dozen times and have hand washed it twice now. Any ideas how this happened? DH thinks a moth, does that really happen?

Moths or carpet beetle larvae will eat holes in wool. Washing more frequently would help, rigorous cleaning/vacuuming can also help, and also storing in a cedar chest or w/something that keeps the moths and beetles away.
