Our warp has double size compare to the last weaving.
I practiced big zig-zag kasuri and small twin-cross.
The horizontal blue and brown stripes are “Hana-ori” ( floating wefts) which Yumiko tried for her obi.
New indigo pot. Weavers around this area buy 20kg of mud indigo.
The indigo should be cleaned by changing water a couple of times, and then adding Awamori, sugar and sodium hydroxide.
