The method of dyeing woollen yarn with Manjistha and Ratanjot was standardized by determining the optimum dyeing conditions, namely dye material concentration, dye material extraction time, dyeing time, mordant concentration and mordanting method. The washing, rubbing, light and perspiration fastness of the dyed samples was also evaluated, giving fair to excellent fastness grades.
