Abstract: The presence of scale structure on the wool fibre surface has a different surface morphology from that of other fibres. The scale structure is responsible for the main cause of felting shrinkage and acts as a surface barrier during the dyeing process. In the past, chemical methods, such as chlorination and oxidation, were used for removing the scale structure. Owing to the environmental awareness, physical methods were developed to encounter the weakness of the chemical methods. Among the physical methods, the low temperature plasma (LTP) treatment, in recent years, has become one of the physical methods that are claimed as an environmentally friendly surface modification method for wool. This paper aimed to give a review of the present development and the application of LTP treatment in textile industry with a special focus on wool.
