In this paper, the dye ability of polyester/wool fabrics after plasma sputtering treatment was investigated. The polyester/wool fabrics were sputtered by copper particles. The natural dye (madder and weld), metal complex and disperse dyes were used for dyeing at the boil point. The Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) was applied for morphological study and the elemental analysis was studied by the Energy Dispersive X-Ray (EDX). Results were monitored by using reflectance spectrophotometer analyses. The results show that, the dye ability of the polyester/ wool fabrics after plasma sputtering is improved and this effect is more pronounced for natural dyes. This study may offer a way to achieve better dye ability of polyester/wool blend fabrics.
