The Japanese Yogi is a sleeping garment used like a blanket for warmth.
The typical yogi had several layers of fabric for the purpose of keeping the person warm during cold winter nights

Medium-Heavy Weight, several textile layers/patches
Many different kinds of indigo fabrics ~ tsutsugaki, solids, kasuri......
