because that will attract moths and such. Also make sure they are DRY. Natural fibers need to breathe so pack in an acid free box and be sure to add some lavender, eucalyptus, or cedar balls and even cedar shavings work well in a nylon. Don't let the herbs or cedar contact the fibers though. Acid free is a must though. Fight the urge to use a rubbermaid container or airtight container. Also anytime you store things and worry about moths you can freeze the item in a zip bag for 3 days bring out and wash and then refreeze and wash again. That will kill larvae.

please excuse typos as I have a 4yo on my lap trying to help

is what is used to store papers and wedding gowns and such. You can get them at paper supply (scrapbooking type) stores and dry cleaners. If you have something professionally cleaned and packed for storage they will do it in an acid free box with acid free tissue. It keeps the fibers from yellowing and disintagrating (think old papers).
