I keep my wovens and firm knits rolled up on lengths of plastic pipe (from the plumbers!). Not too many on one pipe, or it becomes tedious getting the fabric you want out, and the others rolled back up again. I then cover each roll with plastic bin liner to keep out dust and moth, and stick a label on it with the fabric details. My DH cuts the pipe to the length I want it to fit into my wardrobe (US: closet?) using a pipe cutter thingy.

I have been trying to figure out how to do this exact same thing as there aren't enough cupboards on the planet for fabriholics! Thanx for the idea!
