What is the best way to store your yarn
 
Hello,

How do you store your knitting yarn until you need it? Is there a special way/place? Does it depend on the type of yarn (cotton/acrylic, etc). Of course I will eventually use it, but just asking!!

Thank you

I keep mine in plastic bags in plastic totes. Many many totes. And in boxes and more boxes...

I have a solid and glassed front cabinet that I keep acrylic and cotton in. My wool is in one of those giant Ziplocs. Well, that's most of it... I have a bunch in the LYS bags sitting on my sewing machine in the closet. If you don't look in there it's all nice and neat. :roflhard:

I have mine in about a billion boxes. Most of my stuff is just acrylic, so I don't really bother with storing it too special.

Zippered plastic (acrylic?) project bags.

I don't have that much room, but if you do Dollyce's method is awesome! You can actually see your stash! :thumbsup:

Mine's all stored in the basement in plastic bags inside plastic bins. There's also some of those plastic drawer things and a few cardboard boxes.

My wool is in giant ziplocs with the air squeezed out, in labeled cardboard boxes. My acrylic is loose in sealed giant plastic bins. Makes it all a bit hard to fondle, but it works for me... ;)
