Abstract: Low Temperature Plasma (LTP) treatment is claimed as an environmentally friendly treatment for improving the felting and dyeability properties of wool fibre. The effect of LTP treatment on different kind of wool fibres was studied in this paper. Four batches of wool fibre of different diameters were purchased directly from New Zealand for study. These wool fibres were in greasy, raw state and unprocessed. After pre-treating the raw wool fibres, the wool fibres were treated with LTP. The properties of the LTP-treated wool fibres were then assessed. Different properties, namely: feltability, alkali solubility, time of half dyeing and percentage of exhaustion equilibrium, were selected as the assessing parameters. The effect of LTP treatment on the different batches of wool fibre in relation with the properties studied were quantitatively discussed.
