When I took it out of the package, there were many uncut strings - like on every button hole. It was hard to get the buttons through the holes but I suppose they will stretch out with use. I haven't had it long enough to need to wash it so I don't know how it will hold up to washing. It seems to be nicely made so I expect it will wash up fine. Basically, once the loose strings were cut, it was all good.
