How to protect wool?

Okay, I put the Marino wool yarn in a baggie with cedar balls and started my project. Sealed shut bag and left it for about 3 weeks while working on other projects. Opened the baggie and there were WORMY THINGS EATING THE YARN!!!!

I can't do moth balls because of cats and allergies. I'm about ready to swear off any natural fiber because it seems that no matter what I do, it gets EATEN!!!


Also, is alpaca bug resistant?
