Re: Cotton Hakama Shrinkage
Yeah, all the washing was to remove the excess dye. Iwata gave explicit warning that it would need a few washes first. Still, after 4 washes and a few weeks of wear, it leaves my hands and gi blue but is showing signs of getting better.
For what it's worth, I did actually want a black one but Iwata don't make black cotton hakama (nor do Tozando, I think)
