  • Caring for Otters

    My daughter just got her first set of otter wraps. Is there a special way to store them to protect them from being damaged by moths or other vermin? Should I store them in a cedar box like I do my feathers?

    Just wonderin'....

    Cedar boxes are always good to store furs and feathers alike, I do add my wee bundles of medicines as fragrance too!
    Easy to protect, hard to fix once the moth says hello to a good free meal!
    Listen to my heart, not just my mouth! The most powerfull thing we can do is,,,share,,, if we don't it dies with us.

    It is the year of the bear, I am sharpening my claws and will no longer tollerate harrassment.

      Ive had Otter wraps for many years, I hang them in my closet, and I roll them up and put them in my beadwork case when Im going to a pow-wow. I also iron mine if they get bendy from being rolld up.
      I got a fevah! And the only cure is more cowbell!!!

        Ok, while not the same thing, one of my trailers is the better part of an otter and I don't do anything other than what I do for my wools- keep it in the suitcase (always zipped up) with a half dozen or so cedar balls spread around and a couple of those desicants (the little packets that come with electronics that say 'do not eat')

          Little silicone beads meant to dry up moisture that could be harmfull to electronics!

            I actually built a cedar closet. I keep EVERYTHING in there... no bugs yet and it's been two years!

              Yakoke for all your hints.

              I have 2 large cedar drawers in my dresser where I've been storing my feathers, etc., so I've made room for the otters in one of those drawers. The feathers have been fine for a year there and hopefully they'll stay that way! Hate to think of moths or some other critter muching on 'em.

              I've seen houses with fully-lined cedar closets. That might have to be added to our remodeling wish list.
