Has anyone bought a pashmina online? I bought one off ebay just to see the quality of it and to see if it would be a nice bridesmaid gift. I thought it was nice and definitely a gift I want to give. But to me, it seemed like the pashmina has a strong odor to it. Anyone else experience this??
If you have bought them online before, mind sharing where or who you bought it from??

Could the odor be from the wrapping it came in? I bought sheest from BB&B and the plastic bag it came in made the sheets reek but once I washed them they were fine. Try hand washing them? Than hang them to dry and iron them and fold them until you are ready to use?

Thanks for the tip!! It came wrapped in bubble wrap and then it was in a plastic bag so that could be causing the odor. I’ll try washing it and see how it comes outz! 🙂

REAL pashminas are suppossed to have a bit of a “goaty” smell–especially when wet. That is one of the ways to verify authenticity. If you don’t like the smell, you might prefer the cashmere/silk blend instead. It is also soft but has no goat smell.
