Began seeing these in 2300 ft sq home with wool carpet and many different wall hangings and art.
Set 8 clothing moth traps, one each in 8 rooms.
caught one or two in several traps in various room over 40 day period
but in one room (without carpet) caught over 30

See in photo that they are about 4 mm long

Variation of clothing moth?

Doesn't look like a clothes moth, but could be in the same family (Tineidae).
