Eco friendly technology is the key to development. The study was aimed at developing 100% natural yellow colour for dyeing of wool without the use of any synthetic matter as mordant. Generally natural dyes require a mordant for improvement in properties of dyes. Through this study an effort has been made to develop an optimized procedure for dyeing of wool with pure natural turmeric dye with all required good properties. The conventional method of dyeing involves extraction of dye in aqueous solution by boiling for a considerable amount of time. This dyeing method makes the dye dull and unappealing. To overcome this problem a different method of dying was tried and tested. Experiments were conducted to achieve the optimized procedure for dyeing of wool with turmeric. Standard procedures were developed to for dyeing of wool with different dyeing methods. No synthetic material was used at any stage throughout the process. The final samples were tested for light and washing as per standards laid by BIS.
