    Abstract

    The dyeing of wool with henna is investigated using various alum, chrome, iron and tin mordants. The method used is set out and the results, including washfastness, lightfastness and a comparison with the results achieved on cotton, are presented. Bright, lustrous and natural shades were achieved which would be difficult to reproduce with synthetic dyes, the light-and washfastness properties of the henna-dyed wool, however, were not very good.
