Thanks for the reply. I must have a different kind of gi, as my uwagi has no liner--it is constructed of a single-layer, thick, quilted material. You may be right about the fabric softner----it's just that I live in the mountains and the well-water leaves many clothing items stiff enough to stand on end
I think I will try Bujin, as it is time to order a new gi--I have repaired my frayed collars so many times I feel like I have taken up cross-stitching! Thanks again for the input.
