usually they will lose color and bacome dull, stop eating and alot of times they will go into hide and web themselves in or make a molting mat of webbing to lay on. it can take a while.
all of my slings i moved to larger cages at about an inch or so. just be sure what you put them in they cant escape from. at that size they can fit through a pretty small hole. at 1.5 inch's it should be big enough for a small kk.
if you suspect its molting you shouldnt disturb it at all. could be fatal if you do.
