Kasuri threads after dyeing. When skillfully done, the tie-resist pattern sections remain cleanly delineated from the background. One downside of dyeing is the wear and tear it causes on the delicate threads, leading to numerous tiny snags in the fibers. These snags will be detangled and smoothed down during the many thread processing steps to follow, each of which is performed on one thread at a time.
