no washing day blues

I have successfully washed six one-yard lengths of the yukata cotton together. This test was in my front-loading washing machine with Trader Joe concentrated clothes detergent and warm/cold water on a casual cycle.

The result: no running or offsetting of the indigo dyes! And the piece with the white background stayed pristine.

The hand of the washed cotton surprised me. Once ironed it was crisp and cool, not soft and limp. As far as I can see, the direct iron did not make the fabric shiny.
