Re: How old is your wool?

Ours has lasted through multiple kids. Stuff from February 2011 still going strong on kid #2.

Re: How old is your wool?

For storing, just wash, don't lanolize. Store in ziplock type bags with cedar chips, a sachet of cinnamon and cloves, or a cotton ball with cinnamon EO. That should protect your woollies from moths and carpet beetles.
