Sweater appears to have very minimal wear, all resulting from long term storage. There are a handful of areas that have been darned, notably both shoulders where a hanger rubbed through and along the right side. Also of note is a faint yellowing along the right side and a small area on the left side. I made attempts to clean these areas by hand but with only minimal improvement. This yellowing is a result of oxidation that occurs when garments are stored long term in a non climate controlled environment, exposed to open air. Fortunately, being along the sides these areas are not obvious when worn. Cardigan is otherwise nearly pristine! Structurally sound and presents beautifully!
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
