Dyeing Property of Shikonin on Wool Fabric
In this paper, wool fabric was dyed by Shikonin. The optimum conditions of dyeing wool fabric with Shikonin were obtained by the orthogonal and single factor analysis experiments. The specific process conditions are as follows: liquor ratio 1:40; dye concentration 80ml/L; pH 4; temperature 80; time 60min. The results indicated that fastness to washing and to rubbing of wool fabrics dyed with Shikonin was good and has reached more than three level.
