Abstract: It was attempted to bio-mimick the natural melanin biosynthetic pathway to dye textile fabric with natural-looking colors. In this method, dopamine was selected as a biomimetic molecule of 3,4- dihydroxyphenylalanine to form melanins-like colorants. It was found that the wool fabric could be dyed to different color hues in a controllable way by adding a second component to the dyeing bath. The dyed wool fabrics had good fastness. SEM analysis showed that the wool fibre surfaces were effectively covered by the polydopamine colorants.
