Quilters' Guild of East Texas
This information is from a very knowledgeable, quilt historian and quilt restorationist who is a member of the American Quilt Study Group. This is shared with permission. Wool is an animal fiber, naturally acidic, prefers an acidic environment. Can be damaged by alkaline/base substances.
BTW - you create the same Time Bomb if you use wool batts inside cotton fabric. The Bomb may not explode in your lifetime. But when it does and your descendants bring the shattered quilt to someone like me, there will be nothing that can be done to "fix" it.
I know this is true but I had not thought of it in regards to combining quilt batts. The information at the museum supply company where I buy my storage boxes tells you the same thing. Do not put animal protein products (wool, silk) in a buffered box or use acid-free paper.
