Condition: This hand knit fisherman sweater is in very good condition except for one tiny light stain at the right front by the third button (see last close-up photo) - quite minor and should come out with further effort.
This is a very nice quality hand knit fisherman sweater, expertly knit with a heavier weight wool that should last a lifetime with proper care...
