These products include fabric diapers, handkerchiefs, napkins, toddlers' beaks, socks, gloves, woven clothing, crochet bedspreads, mosquito nets and seamless clothing. If a single package contains more than one item, you must specify the number of items and the description of these items that cannot be sold separately.
