Scholarcy highlights

  • The properties of the surface layer on wool fibres which limits the rate of dye uptake have been examined
  • The removal of the barrier layer by mechanical means and its degradation by surface reduction using tri–butyl phosphine have been studied using the rate of dyeing as a parameter
  • The chemical properties of the barrier layer suggest that it is a cystine–rich component of the cuticle layer system, either the exocuticle or its ‘a’ layer sub-system
