I bought this for an emergency blanket in the car. We often travel over mountain passes so it's a good thing to have. Works great for insulating frozen foods when I stock up before the 3 hour drive home. The kids don't mind wrapping up in it if they are cold from a blustery hike either.

    Due to a mild (not overwhelming) mothball smell, this heavy wool blanket does need to be hung outside in a breeze (which is possible in S. CA at Christmas time when it's over 75ºF outside) to air out. That, and a tag so worn it cannot be read, are the reasons this item doesn't get 5 stars. If you are sensitive to mothball odor, don't buy this item. Nonetheless, this is a very thick, soft, substantial wool blanket sized perfectly for emergency use in your vehicle or RV. This is a dense, high quality wool blanket that you can throw across the cargo area in your SUV, but also use camping or when stranded to stay warm and safe. Yet it's priced to use and lose, if necessary (not an heirloom). We lost one like it when someone hit (and left) a poor dog on a rural road and we wrapped the large, dog in our cargo blanket. We found her owners at a near-by farm house, and told them to keep the blanket for carrying their dog home, of course. (We never found out if she survived, but at least our blanket helped on a cold night). This Russian wool blanket has the same good qualities as our old wool blanket (keeps anyone warm even if damp), but one can use it at need.

    These are extremely warm blankets. The mothball smell is present; a day of airing out took care of it. The only gripe I have is the uniformity of the sizes. I bought two and they are not exactly the same size, but this is nothing when compared to the value they represent. This is not merino wool, but thick scratchy wool that may not fit every conceivable application. This is definitely a winter-only blanket, unless you live in Russia.:)

    I bought this blanket as an emergency preparedness item for my car and home kit. You can't beat wool for year-round protection. It is a good size, is heavy/thick and my daughter loves hers for warmth in front of the TV. Great purchase.

    I bought this blanket knowing full well the smell was a mixed commentary. I wanted to re-figure it a bit. It looks exactly like I wanted but can't get past the smell. Have tried everything but the actual dry clean-The value it was would have totally gone up in smoke but may have to suck it up and do it. Has no value as it sits. Had such a good plan for it's use but at a stand still now.

    looks so very cheap compared to some other army style blankets, we'll see how it holds up.
    is more like a moving blanket with a gingerly stitched edge than an actual piece of utilitarian bedding.
    • Best Uses: Spring/Fall
    • Cons: Poor Quality, Uncomfortable

    • Answer The "mothball smell" wasn't an issue. I simply hung it on a line in my Apt for a couple of days to air it out and it was fine. Try Fabreeze if that doesn't work

    • Answer If you are asking this prior to ordering, I may have helpful information, inasmuch as my blankets did not have any odor at all when they arrived. If you already have them and aren't as lucky, I'm afraid I'm of no help!
      Answered on 12/2/2011 12:00:00 AM by Old Coach from Bellingham, WA
    • Answer It is possible to wash it in cold water and hang dry this may be done with minimal shrinkage.
      Answered on 10/5/2011 12:00:00 AM by Prod. Spec. Kevin from Sierra Trading Post
    • Answer Since this blanket is mainly wool, it is recommended to dry clean it. The blanket is designed to look worn, but washing it in the washer may cause shrinkage and a mild odor.
