    I store my fabric away from the windows. I suffered some damage awhile back. I have a closet and the rest is stored against a wall where no sun hits the material.

    You could use the plastic with the UV coating. It reflects the sun back out instead of going thru it and you can see thru the plastic. It is the same thing as tinting car windows

    I have the UV film on all of my windows and the highest % of blockage on the west windows where my sewing room is. I also keep my fabric in a closet and glass front cabinets that are tinted. You might try making curtains to cover your shelving - I've used this in the past and it worked great. P.S. use a light colored fabric for the curtains because it reflects heat.

    I store mine away from all light, natural or flourescent. I lived in Arizona for a while and learned the hard way. If you use large bin or boxes, be sure to line with cotton muslin as another precaution against off-gases from plastic or acid from wood. Hope this helps.
