Wool is meant to be used and loved often. It is best not to store your wool for longer than a season. If you decide to store your wool as a keepsake, thoroughly wash and rinse your garment to remove all oils. Make sure the wool is completely dry. It is best to keep your woolens in an airtight container or cedar chest. Moth balls and cedar will help discourage pests. Never store your woolens in an attic or a basement as the extreme temperature changes will damage wool.
