Do moths eat rayon or Lycra?
First a note: it is actually the larvae of moths that eat your sweaters, not the adults. Most experts seem to say that moth larvae only eat "natural "fibers, ie. wool, cashmere, silk, angora, etc. If your rayon or other synthetic is blended with wool, as many are, the larvae will eat the wool part of the blend, which still results in clothes-ruining holes. My personal experience (selling & collecting vintage clothes) is that moth larvae do seem to like blended rayon quite a bit. I've never known them to attack any other synthetic, though.

What material did the Romans use for their clothes?
Are cashmere scarfs more likely to be eaten by moths than wool scarfs if I leave them in my drawer for almost a whole year?
Leaving cashmere in a drawer for a year can lead to moths just like wool left for that time will lead to moths. What I would suggest is moth balls or using a space saver bag and sucking all the air out to protect your garment. Cashmere is very delicate and expensive and any damage to it would be tragic. Make sure you have the scarf in a air tight container before putting it in your drawer for that long.
