Post by jedi1 on Sun Jan 27, 2013 11:12 am

Not sure if im posting in correct topic. Was wondering ( dangerous i know ) how does everbody store there feathers ie Hackles and Marabou?
I keep mine in a airtight container in the original packaging ( as it still contains the special crystals ), Im i doing right by this?

if in doubt...get some napthalene crystals (or moth balls) and store feathers and fur in an airtight container or ziplok bag to prevent any bugs and nasties spreading through other materials.... after a few years you get used to the smell of napthalene !!...in fact I quite like it !!!! ;-)
