Options other then these plastic containers or tubs are cedar sachet, lavender sachet which keep this infestation away from the stored yarn stash and give a good control to it; are see through transparent closets, simple sophisticated baskets which also give a neat and organize look. Any choice you make with the storing must be most convenient for you to manage and save your hassle in searching required yarn here and there.

Another problem for knitters working from home is getting mess up with children while you are up to making something with yarn, for which separate craft room is best option or simply you can avoid interruption by placing things a little up on high surface. And one should never forget to waste the unwanted or useless yarn as its problematic most of times to handle leftover material.
