    Does it matter how to store batting? I've read here to not store fabric in clear plastic bins because sunlight can fade colors, so does it matter about batting?

    I don't think so. Especially if the batting is white, sunlight shouldn't affect it. Haven't used dark battings, so not as sure about those.

    Sunlight fades the dyes used in fabrics. Batting, as far as I know, isn't dyed.

    Mine is stacked against a wall in my bedroom and seems to be doing fine.

    whatever came in plastic wrapping is still in it and whatever came in rolls has a sheet thrown over it for dust. i don't bother it and it doesn't bother me. win-win.

    Mine is in the huge box it came in, under my sewing table. The legs of the table hold the flaps closed so that the cats can't play in there.

    my roll of batting hangs from the ceiling on a closet rod. Its out of the way and handy to just pull off what I need.

    I have a roll still in the box unopened and a 1/2 roll laying on the floor. Little girl cat thinks it's her new bed.
    I just leave it where it is, doesn't bother me
