Cool find, BugQueen! These look like Fall Webworm Moth caterpillars. They also build web nests but are usually yellowish with long hairs. Malacosoma neustria is a species that does not occur in North America. There are a few species of moths from Genus Malacosoma in North America, but they tend to be darker and have more color.
