Hi all,
Just wondering how you knitters stored your surplus wool to protect it from silverfish and moths. I am starting to get a lovely collection of wool and don't want it chomped to pieces. Don't fancy using mothballs - any ideas on natural methods would be gratefully received.
Cheers

I like cedar - chips, balls, etc., and lavender (maybe not as effective as cedar, though).

Hi Marta
Thank you for this. I have bought those large cliplock plastic bags to put the wool into. Would you put the cedar balls inside with the wool or just in the wardrobe itself where I am storing it.

I suppose that would depend on whether I was worried about a likely infestation (in which case, the closer the better) or just trying to prevent one from ever happening (where putting the cedar balls in the closet should be enough, I guess). But I have been known for spraying the inside of a plastic bin with cedar spray before putting bags of wool in it...
