Bird eggs

From: Libby Finney <lfinney>

I have been asked by a museum for information about suppliers of
rayon wool or the high grade surgical cotton wool commonly used in
storing collections of birds' eggs. I understand that Rank Xerox,
who used to supply rayon wool, no longer do so and I have been
unable to locate other suitable suppliers.

The collection also has to be moved offsite whilst building work is
undertaken and then returned to the museum at a later date.  Any
information and advice regarding the removal and storage of a
collection of this type, together with suppliers details for any
materials recommended would be greatly appreciated.
