Subject: Tyvek

As part of an integrated pest management program, it has been
suggested that Tyvek soft wrap be used instead of tissue between
textiles in flat storage.

While Tyvek will not offer the relative humidity buffering that
tissue provides, it has the advantage of not being a food source for
museum pests. Has anyone on the DistList had any experience,
positive or negative, with using Tyvek soft wrap in contact with
textiles in long-term storage situations?
