Storing Wool

How should I store wool between children? I've read that it shouldn't be under anything heavy or compressed. I store the clothes I'm keeping for future children in a tote. Would the wool be okay in there? Does it need to be in a heated or air conditioned place? Or can I keep it in my storage shed? Plastic bag or no?

Re: Storing Wool

I would make sure it's clean and unlanolized and in a plastic bag or cedar chest. The rest I'm not sure it it matters. I just keep mine individually in ziplock gallon bags inside rubbermaid tubs with the rest of the diapers in the basement.

Re: Storing Wool

I stored mine a sealed ziploc with other diapering items in my basement. They were fine. I think the main thing would be to have them in something sealed so as not to worry about moths. I've never heard the "don't compress".

Re: Storing Wool

the storage shed thing scares me. I'd be afraid moths would get in or mice would chew through the plastic bags.

Re: Storing Wool

Good thread. I just stored some wool today but didn't do anything other than put in a box. Now, I'll go back and put in a ziploc.

Why washed but not lanolized? I'm dreading having to go wash lanolin out of everything now!
