Fastness properties of woollen yarn dyed with natural dye are the main problems in its application. In this paper the dyeing of woollen yarn samples with Kamala (Mallotus philippinensis) natural dye has been studied using eco-friendly metal mordants and its combination (5% Iron), (2.5 % Iron + 0.5 % Tin) and (1 % Tin), fifty four shades have been developed. Fastness properties (light, wash and rub/crocking) were studied on these samples. CIElab, CIELch and K/S values were also assessed. The results obtained have shown that woollen yarn samples dyed with Kamala (Mallotus philippinensis) natural dye with metal mordants and its combination have shown good fastness properties.
