Abstract: In this study, wool fiber was pulverized into nanoscale powder. The wool powder was confirmed to be nanoscale by scanning electron microscopy and particle size analysis. Nano-wool was applied to cotton fabric to take advantage of the surface and volume effects of the nanoscale particles, and to provide a means of recycling and reusing discarded wool fiber. The results showed that the nano-wool enhanced the swelling, UV protection, and wrinkle recovery, but reduced the air permeability, of the cotton fabric.
