We are North of Seattle.  I think these critters hitched a ride on some fabric that was donated to a nonprofit quilting group.  Any help in identifying the little guys would be greatly appreciated.   Thank you.

Looks like a carpet beetle.  Adults are harmless, larva eat everything such as fabric and have hairs that can irritate some people.
