Just a quick reminder to dry clean your woolens and knitwear before putting it away for the warmer months. And, if you’re planning to store your garments in a cedar chest, don’t forget to give the wood a light sanding to reactivate the oils.
If you’ve got damage that needs reweaving, do it now so it’s ready to go when the mercury drops again! (May we humbly suggest Reweaving of Richmond?)
Happy (almost) Spring.
While your Fall and Winter garments have rested, the moths and carpet beetles have been busy.
- Inspect your sweaters for the upcoming season;
- Move the fall and winter weight wools, cashmeres, tweeds, and camel hair (you get the idea) into the active part of your closet;
- Inspect your tuxedo –allow us time for the repair before that big event.
Fill out the Form and ship all affected garments to us now for a no-cost estimate.
It happens to the best of us. Your wallet wears a hole in your back pocket, or you catch your watch on your trouser pocket once too often. Moths aren’t responsible for all the damage we repair at Reweaving of Richmond! Take this, for example, our client pulled the tag off of the sleeve of this suit coat before the premiere outing, leaving two holes where the tightly sewn tag was attached.
No worries. We repair human mistakes, too!
Please remember that this is an art, and art takes time! Call today for updates and estimates.
What a lovely, cool, brisk, and bright day we’re having in Central Virginia. So lovely that I chose to wear one of my favorite sweaters for the first time this season.
Which is when I discovered one of two holes that the moths had made since last winter. Fortunately, Reweaving of Richmond will be able to make short work of making my sweater … errr … whole again.
Start the Fall and Winter off right, check for moth damage in your wool garments today and beat the holiday rush to have the best repairs possible made as quickly as humanly possible.

A funny story for you. I purchased this sweater in Harrod’s in London in the late 1970’s after an all-night flight from New York. I don’t remember what the exact exchange rate was at the time, but it was about two US Dollars to the English Pound. The sweater was 250 English Pounds so I divided by two and I thought, “Great, what a bargain; only $125!” So I bought two. A month later when we got the Harrod’s bill, we discovered that each sweater had cost $500! So much for trusting your brain to do the higher math after not sleeping! It took us a few months to pay them off, but, as you can see, they were indeed a bargain!
Reweaving a piece of personal history is always special to us. What a great story and a good example of buying the best quality you can. After 40 + years, our client’s sweaters are still with him. We’re glad we could help save a little bit of London!
It is rare that a business gets a hand-written thank you. We at Reweaving sincerely appreciate your business.
I couldn’t believe it! Couldn’t even tell (if I didn’t already know) where it had been rewoven. Amazing!
It’s hard to say goodbye to a brilliant suit. One that you’ve come to depend on time and time again. One you spent good money for and that has a lot of life left!
Especially since it was nothing more than a ferocious gaggle of moth larvae that did the damage.
Well, that’s what Reweaving of Richmond undoes! Yes, we do sweaters. And sport coats, and trousers and scarves and woolen beanies and cashmere socks and anything else that moths eat.
We left the safety pins in for you to “see” where the damage from above once was.
“I just want to highly recommend Reweaving of Richmond! Last fall, I sent them 7 sweaters that needed all states of repair. They were returned in perfect condition! They saved 7 cashmere sweaters, for less than I could buy one! Mine were all solids of varying colors, but I cannot see the where the holes were in a single one of them!
Thanks to Larry and his team!” -Gloria Miller
We’d like to think that Fido was going after a pesky moth before it could lay eggs in this garment… Dog bite, not something we’ve dealt with before.
But through a little bit of magic on the inside…
We think that Fido is once again man’s best friend… Another quick save by Reweaving of Richmond.
Don’t know whom of you repaired my sweater. Received it in today’s mail and am very pleased.
Repair is completely invisible. Have a camel hair topcoat with moth damage on a sleeve that I’ll send next.
