Abstract

Tensile strength, moisture absorption, air permeability, "cool-hand" attribute, good comfort, etc. properties of linen fibers are better than cotton fiber. The demand for linen and its blends is gaining importance, however, researches conducted on dyeing them is limited in the literature. In this work, dyeing of 100 % linen and 50/50 % linen/viscose, 50/50 % linen/cotton blends with direct, reactive and sulphur dyes by the exhaustion method were studied. The dye exhaustion properties of the direct and reactive dyes were determined and moreover, the fastness properties of dyed materials and the mechanical properties of dyed and undyed materials were compared.
