Case Making Clothes Moth Larva

Dear Na,
This looks like a Case Making Clothes Moth Larva to us, and though you did not indicate if it was found among wool or silk clothes, the image on fabric supports that it may have been found in a closet.  See BugGuide for more images and information including that they:  “Feed on wool, feathers, fur, hair, upholstered furniture, leather, fish meals, milk powders, lint, dust or paper. Often infesting carpets, especially in damp areas.”
