Check out your local knitting /craft store. They keep their yarn out in the open, on racks, not in the dark and all piled up. Perhaps you can create a hanging system. I screwed cup hooks into a wall and hang my bagged Christmas decorations on the hooks. Or maybe you can build shelves into that closet so you can set the yarn on them.
