Oxidation

Oxidation is a central part of the dyeing process that occurs when the indigo dyed yarn between dips is levitated out of the indigo bath and gets in contact with oxygen, which turns the indigo dye from a greenish-yellow back to its original deep blue colour. Oxidation is also what permanently fixes the dye to the fibres.
