Get the sewing machine out.

I have not owned a sweater or fed moths in eons

That's the unfortunate thing about the fashion calendar unless its a core item that can be sold year-round for several years; that you probably won't ever be able to find a replacement once it wears out. I once had a pink interlock polo that I really loved from spring/summer 2015 that got bleach spots in the back that I was sad to get it damaged. Three years later in spring/summer 2018 a miracle happened that my favorite brand released a new interlock polo in the same shade of pink. While not exactly the same shirt; it captured the spirit of the previous one. My spring/summer 2018 interlock polo is still going strong after two years; this month was actually its two-year anniversary since I bought it. I hope one day I can find a spring/summer 2015 in my size in new, unworn condition for I can have both the 2015 and the 2018. I have been on the lookout on eBay, Poshmark, and Mercari for one since 2016.

You can see the neckline getting frayed.

I still wear it sometimes but it'd probably be better to get a new one!

You can try to crochet mouse teeth along the neckline. Maybe use a pearl embroidery floss to make it look the same but not the same. Have you tried Amazon?

If someone got half of a chuckle out of "I am", I'm happy that they did. I buy quality clothing when I want or need it to last. I own vintage items that I've aged in my own closet. I have sweaters that my mom knit for me in the 1980s. I wear them, too. I wasn't kidding when I said that I was wearing an old sweater. I love the silk cardigan that I bought in 2010.

I don't wear them every day or week, so they last for very a long time.

When the Celebrities wear anything over again, the media calls it "recycled"
