We recommend washing in a gentle cycle and laying flat to dry in order to preserve the felt work.
Wonderfully simple design and excellent craftsmanship. As someone who works in a museum with lots of clothes from the 30s and 40s, including baseball jerseys and the like, I know this sweatshirt was made just like clothes were back then and that it will likely outlast me.
