harmful to your precious pashmina blanket. So before storing
your pashmina blanket in basements or attics, always keep in
mind that your pashmina blankets don’t get in touch with
dampness, sunlight and leakages. Fold pashmina blanket or pack
them neatly in tissue paper or polythene bag and store them
in closet away from light, dust and dampness.
- Cleaning pashmina blanket before storage is
recommended, as fresh stains that may not yet be visible will
oxidize and become fixed during storage; they may also be
the food for moths. Moths have a discerning palate; they feast
only on natural fabrics. Mothballs (naphthalene) and cedar
chips are standard protection from moth infestation of woolens.
- To store a pure pashmina blanket during summer,
the most important thing is to keep moisture away, and so
please do not store pashmina blankets in a damp place. A well-sealed
plastic storage box (available in most stores) is good enough
(be sure that if there is any moisture inside). Make sure
the box is dry before you put your pashmina blankets in.

thing is to make sure that the blanket is clean before long-time
storage. Pay close attention to any food stains as moths are
particularly attracted to our normal food proteins and cooking
oils. Those mothproofing products are helpful, or simply spray
some perfume on a piece of paper and put the paper next to
your blankets inside the box.
