Blends Dyeing
by John Shore
Published by the Society of Dyers and Colourists

Blending of two or more different types of fibres is of crucial significance to the textile industry. The yarns and fabrics produced display a range of desirable properties that otherwise could not be achieved by a single textile component. The technical and commercial requirements of blended fibres place great demands on dyers and colourists to achieve high-quality, reproducible results under production conditions. The range of substrates available and the multitude of variables that dyeing technologists have to consider make blends dyeing a complex subject. The author has a lifetime’s experience in textile coloration. In this book he distils his wealth of knowledge to produce a compact but comprehensive volume, including all fibre and dyestuff combinations that the student or practising coloration technologist is likely to encounter. It is not intended as a detailed recipe book for dyers, rather as a fascinating insight into the ‘whys’ and ‘hows’ of blended fibre coloration.
