When I purchase linen for embroidery I always try to iron out the crease that is often there. Much nicer to get a piece without but not always possible. I staple a label to the top with name, colour, size and where purchased, etc., whatever you need to know. I then roll it on a tube (paper towel, wrapping paper, etc.) along with a few others of the same count and put it in bags that I have made. I label the outside of the bag and store them all in a drawer or a large plastic container ( the kind used for wrapping paper).
I don’t buy linen by the yard but in smaller amounts so they fit most tubes. I made my bags out of leftovers from my quilting days. Bags of different sizes can also be used to store ongoing projects rolled on their bars. A drawstring could also be added if you are going to transport it.
