Allow me to first say that I am a fabric snob. It's true and I admit it, working on evenweave makes me happy so that's what I do.
That being said, the only fabric I have to worry about sorting and storing fabric by type.
All the fabric has been sorted by size, ignoring type. And all the colours are mixed together. I tend to just go through the choices when I'm looking for something for a project.
25 count and 32 count are in these nice lined baskets that my mom got me a few years ago. I took a picture of some of the fabrics and added the fabric out to it before printing and attaching to the outside with some ribbon. This way I don't have to remember which is which.
The 28 count is in the big basket stand mom and I found at Costco and has been the home for my fabric for many years. All my hand-dyed Joblean is in the bottom basket and most of my neutrals and in the middle. I didn't try for it to work that way but some how it did.
For those small cuts that will be useful for things like ornaments, I picked a deep scrapbook case from them to be stored in
