These blankets may smell heavily of naphthalene due to their storage with mothballs. The blankets have not been chemically treated. Normally, this penetrating odor can be eliminated with two cleanings or simply by airing it out in an open area.

I am very happy with the quality of these blankets. Bought 2 to keep for emergencies in each car. Very large & thick. Yes they had a horrible odor upon arrival. DO NOT OPEN THE SHIPPING BOX IN THE HOUSE!! I opened the box upon arrival outside on my deck. The smell was like everyone else has said....

Love the weight and muted color. Super price for all wool...no blend. I have read the complains about odor. I have a deviated septem and can't smell the moth balls; however, I have noticed the air taste funny. Buy several... you will be glad.

I bought three of these blankets. Some for camping and others for hydrotherapy treatments such as a Sitz Bath where the person is sitting in a chair with their feet in a container of hot water. The body of the person is then wrapped up in a sheet then the wool blanket to make the person sweat. This and many more treatments can be found in this excellent resource book called, "The Natural Remedies Encyclopedia".
The moth ball smell was very strong and nauseating. We found the best way to get the odour out is to wash the blackets twice one with soap then again with baking soda on gentle cycle. You can put them in the dryer on low for a bit and then they need outdoor exposure to the sun for the day. Hope this helps.
