I love wearing wool, especially in winter when it gets so cold and wet here in Britain; I love knitting with wool too. And I can (and do) darn my hand knitted items, but even when darned, moth holes mar a garment. I really don't know how to protect my woolly clothes from these pesky bugs, other than individually pack into ziploc bags (even the big vacuum pack bags somehow admitted moths).
My best solution is to have only a few woolly items, and wear them frequently...
