Hi, I had a similar thing happen about 15 years ago - a hat in my bedroom was covered in what looked like sawdust, but on closer inspection in was loads of mites. They were also on my tv, records, books, even my clothes hangers! Every dark surface seemed to be covered in them.
I wiped everything with an insecticide, laundered all my clothes, soaked the hangers in the bath. I ended up throwing away loads of stuff. I think these must be some kind of grain mite - do you have any damp? They feed on mould and mildew spores. i wondered also if they were dust mites - you can sometimes see them although they are minute.
This freaked me out too - I was only 16 at the time and I find myself checking surfaces etc all the time cos I'm paranoid it might happen again.
Good luck, and don't worry too much - at least they don't seem to bite.
