Hartstrings used to be synonymous with quality. But no longer apparently. The sweater looks beautiful, but the velveteen bows shred & shed, and the top button popped off with a broken shank. And, the sweater is labeled "Made in China", not specifically "Hong Kong" - at any rate, it is "Not Made in America". It is extremely disappointing to know that what used to be a very good brand has now decided to cut corners in the name of profits, and in turn eliminate American jobs by shipping their manufacturing to China. Shame on you Hartstrings! Like I say, a beautiful sweater, but be prepared to replace buttons and deal with shabby bows.
