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 BOUGHT SEVERAL OF THESE FOR MY FAMILY TO THROW IN THE TRUNK OF THEIR CARS FOR EMERGENCIES OR SITTING ON THE GROUND DURING SPORTING EVENTS.
I RECEIVED ONE 30 YEARS AGO AND HAS BEEN IN THE TRUNK OF EVERY ONE OF MY AUTOS. I STILL USE IT TODAY. THESE WIIL TAKE A LONG TIME TO GET THE MOTH-BALL SMELL OUT AND SOFTEN UP. WORTH THE STP PRICE ID YOU CAN BEAR THE TIME AND PATIENCE BREAK ONE IN

I bought this blanket to make messenger bags out of, so I don't plan to use it as a blanket--it's very heavy and thick. It would work well over another blanket on a very cold night, I suppose. It did take several days to get the moth ball smell out of it, and my house still smells of moth balls. I would actually like to get more, and just open them up outside and hang them up in the sun straightaway. For now, it's waiting to be made into something else.

I had to wash these hot 3 times and leave them hanging outside for 2 weeks before the mothball smell diminished enough to bring them inside. They are scratchy wool. Two of mine came complete with burrs and weed bits from the previous user's outdoor use. Still, they are very dense and warm, great for camping.

This has been aired out for week and it has been washed once, it still smells. It's been in the garage to avoid rain and it makes the entire house smell. The smell of the chemical treatment is overwhelming, I doubt it will ever be useful inside because of the chemical/camphor odor.
