    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.

    My girlfriend doesn't want it in the apartment, but once I get the smell out I'm sure she'll be swayed. Quality like this,at this price,is worth a little effort!

    • Answer New. They've been stored in mothballs so they need to be washed prior to use. I washed twice to get odor out (and dried on fence outside).

    • Answer Mine was new. I know that there is a combination of them out there ranging from new to used in great condition. Most places that I have seen them for sale usually list them as new or used.
