Description
Black purl stitched chunky wool knit. The top consists of a tube body that falls to the thigh with a cut in chunk at the back, and a slit hole for one arm. A large extruded loop is attached to the top of the body which is looped around and roughly secured back onto itself, to be wrapped around the body and over one arm. The external seams are all exaggerated and frayed adding to the overall raw, ragged.
