Hello. What is the best way to store yarn, especially wool? I have a fair amount of yarn and it is all stored in ziplock baggies in some dresser drawers, but I notice that some of you store it in containers, ziplocks, etc.

Some suggestions would be great! Thanks!

For me, yarn storage is more a matter of space than anything else. I put it in bins so it's stackable with tops to keep the dust off. I have it in drawers and plastic bags.

The only thing I wouldn't do is store it where it's damp for obvious reasons.

I think one of those big ornament tubs would be awesome. It's got sections for your christmas balls, and it's clear. Instead of ornaments, stick your yarn in there. Next time I see one, I'm grabbin it.

Something like this...http://www.organize-everything.com/orstsnnstors.html

Rubbermade makes bigger ones.

Right now, the majority of mine is in zip loc bags, all squished into the bag my king sized comforter came in. It's a zipped (clear) plastic bag. I like Foldebird's idea better, though.
