You can store anything in a cedar chest. The trick is not not let any fabric touch the wood itself. The acids and oils can leech on to the fabrics and stain them permanently.

I have an old white sheet, washed and no fabric softener (perfume oils), that lines my cedar chest on all six sides.

What you also want to remember, is to never store anything in a dry cleaner bag. I ruined a light color cashmere coat that way......and it still pains me to think about it.
