A mohair blanket is an investment, an heirloom. Like woolen fabrics, mohair blankets are also susceptible to damage by moths.
How to store your beautiful mohair blankets
1. Always clean the blanket before storage because soiled fibres provide food that attracts the pests.
2. Avoid storing mohair in plastic because the fabric needs to breathe. Instead, place loosely folded fabric in a cotton bag or pillowcase, then store it on a shelf in a cool, dry area.
3. Pop a few homemade natural mothball bags within your folded blanket.
Haul them out in winter and they’re as good as new!
