I’ve recently started doing this too… they take up less space and roll off easier whilst working knit or crochet. Also they look super cute. Not so great for direct shelf storage as they will roll off but if you keep your yarn in baskets like me it’s a great space saver.
How do you store silk yarn?
If you must pile your stash because there is a lot of it, store them in solid plastic tubs stacked on top of each other. Wool needs to breath. Don’t suffocate your wool in tight plastic for long periods of time. Many comforter or dry cleaning bags include breathing vents so some fresh air can reach your textiles.
