Our entomologist thinks that this may be a beetle larvae of some type. She can't tell for sure what type without seeing the underside/legs.

It may be unrelated, but she suggests you look closely at the wool rug, as they can host a fabric pest called carpet beetles. Flip up the edge and look closely. They are usually found within the first foot or so of the edge.
In any case, your vaccuum is your best friend. It could also be professionally cleaned and moth protected.
