Wool Dyeing

Nature volume 54, page 571 | Download Citation



THIS little book is a reprint of a series of articles contributed to the Textile Recorder. In spite of the title, the subject of dyeing is not dealt with, being reserved for parts ii. and iii., and only the operations previous to dyeing are treated of in the present volume. The divisions of this subject are: (1) The Wool Fibre; (2) Wool Scouring; (3) Wool Bleaching; (4) Water for Technical Purposes. The treatment, although not exhaustive, is fairly thorough and quite up-to-date, and no important feature of these subjects, either chemical or mechanical, is left untouched. The book can hardly be described as attractive reading for an outsider; but it will doubtless prove useful to teachers and students in technical classes, and should be helpful also to those engaged in the dyeing industry—happily a growing number—who wish to understand the principles underlying the operations they conduct, and who may be led by it to the study of some more exhaustive work.
