  1. I like the larger storage ideas. The smaller ones wouldn’t hold a fraction of my stash. The problem with open storage however is the yarn collects dust. I guess my plastic bins will do for now.

  2. These are wonderful if you want to display your stash of yarn. I prefer to keep my stash conceal from light until I use it.
