    The tube deal you've got going there looks like it'll work fine,what do you reckon?

    rolling it like that should be fine. Don't know about the tube. It's gotta be acid free if you do use it. Otherwise it can damage the cloth. Also cloth needs to have air so it can't be rolled too tight. One thing that we did at the museum I worked at is put real light cloth on both sides of it and than rolled it so it did not just touch itself. It also needs to be periodically taken out to air and reroll a different direction so it cannot in many years time become brittle.
