Eggs on curtain

We just found this bunch of eggs on net curtain in the bedroom, anyone have a clue what they might be?

They appear to be large enough to be a butterfly but how and why would they put them on a non food item?

Just in case they're something nasty, they are now contained as you can see so whatever emerges cannot consume our home!

Hi

Looks to me to be a cluster of moth eggs, let them hatch an interesting project in these terrible times


Stay safe

Thanks Steve,
we intend to let them emerge to try and figure out what they are.
