Object description

simple name


Hand knits for babies and children were popular – and practical. This knitted outfit for a toddler has been made to stretch and fit a growing child over a longer period of time. Children’s clothes would often be handed down to younger family members.

Physical description

Long-sleeved tunic-style jacket of knitted beige wool with a stand and fall collar, fastened to the left front by a series of six large vertical buttons.
