The colouration of wool
D. M. LEWIS, The University of Leeds, UK

Abstract : Perceived and real environmental threats have greatly influenced wool dyeing trends and much of these effects are detailed. In particular chrome dyeing has been under scrutiny and methods to avoid the use of extremely toxic Cr (VI) compounds are discussed. Damage in wool dyeing is an important theme and the use of anti-setting agents in wool dyebaths is fully described along with their modus operandi. In the latter case reactive dyes have much to offer especially in the case of those reacting by a Michael addition mechanism. Shrink-resist treatments to give machine-washable wool are discussed in terms of required dye selection and also the environmental hazards of Absorbable Organo Halogen (AOX) production if pre-chlorination is used. Recent developments in ink-jet printing and how they should favour wool fabric printing are described.

Key words : wool chemistry, acid dyes, chrome dyes, reactive dyes, dyeing theory, dyeing machine-washable wool, damage and wool setting, ink-jet printing.

1.1 Introduction
Animal fibres such as wool, cashmere and alpaca are highly prized when made into garments since these exhibit desirable properties such as soft touch, warmth, beautiful drape, excellent comfort in wear and, using modern synthetic dyes, unparalleled colouration possibilities with very few shade restrictions. Leeder 1 points out that wool has been bio-engineered over millions of years to be worn next to an animal’s skin, and is thus better than other types of fibres in terms of comfort in wear; it possesses the properties of absorbing up to 30% of its own weight of water without feeling wet, and even giving out heat when it absorbs water. Despite the above strong positives it has to be noted that wool makes up less than 5% of the textile market, cotton and synthetic fibres making up the bulk – it would not be possible for wool growing to increase significantly and therefore wool must position itself mainly in the desirable ‘luxury’ item sector of the market. There are also performance disadvantages, which are not present in garments made from the other textile fibres; these include felting shrinkage (in knitwear this can be as high as 60%) during household laundering procedures, the need to scour the raw wool to remove lanolin, soil and seeds, and attack by moths and beetles during garment storage.
