As soon as I discovered the hole, I put the ball in a ziploc bag and put it outside in the freezing weather. After a day or two I brought it inside and started unwinding the ball to see what I could salvage. It turned out that the hole was about a 1/4" deep. I unwound from the center of the ball and had a lot of usable yarn. I'm saving the external wraps (the ones that have been chewed) and may be able to use them as texture in some handspun yarn.
