storing heirloom crochet

Recommended Posts

MIL gave us a filet tablecloth that DH's great-grandmother crocheted. I put it in the linen closet even though it'll likely never be used. What can I do to preserve it? Should I get one of those giant ziploc bags?

 

(I've also got a small afghan my great-grandmother knitted.)

No...no....no!!!! Fabrics need to breathe. Roll it in some acid-free tissue paper or place it into an acid-free box......then don't stick it into the basement or the attic. It needs to be cool and dry......normal living environment temps and humidity is good. Your linen closet is a good place, just don't have it touch bare wooden shelves.
