Condition Detail
Sweater has three noticeable beige dots at chest, one at right wrist, and spiral tie at chest is partially missing; the wrists are notched and this looks to be original as it was knitted and finished purposefully; noticeable tan spots to back of leggings waist to hip; feels slightly boardy and possibly washed a bit too hot/too much agitation at one point

Washing Instructions
Lukewarm hand wash (no agitation), shape and dry flat; or dry clean
