Nejime is a securing tie used to hold warp threads together. It is recommended to make Nejime and other securing ties from thin cotton thread because cotton makes a more secure knot than synthetic threads. Tie a square knot at one end of the warped threads, move along the fiber  warp bundle,  ½ inch to ¾ inch, tie another square knot.  Pass the chopstick through the loop just created, insert chopstick through hole in mirror, pull chopstick and thread bundle flat under the mirror.
