In the interest of her mental health, and yours, have her take the
things by an exterminator, who can fumigate them ... then she can take
them home with a joyous confidence. This will not keep new moths from
flying in the window and infesting them ... 
Moths consider felt in a grand piano a gourmet treat, and you cannot
imagine how it alters the music for the worse.  
If you assure your friend that there cannot be any moths in that
furniture, I promise you, there will be some. And it will be your
fault.  Even if the moths show up 20 years from now ...
