Abstract: In this research, the all-in acid dyeing/lemon oil microcapsule finishing process was studied with the aim to develop an efficient energy- and time-saving process for silk fabrics. Telon Red M-R and Supralan Red C-WN dyes were acid dyes used in this study. In the 2-step process, silk fabrics were dyed using pad-dry-bake process and then the finishing agent, lemon oil microcapsules, was treated onto the dyed silk fabrics using pad-dry-cure process in the presence of 20 g/l acrylic binder. In the developed all-in process, silk fabrics were treated in the mixed bath of acid dye and lemon oil microcapsules in the presence of acrylic binder. The results showed that silk fabric from the all-in process could attain comparable color strength and shade as compared with those from the 2-step process. In addition, the all-in process could also render a similar finishing degree to the 2-step process on silk, especially at pH 4, comfirming with the amount of extracted lemon oil from the treated fabrics. This study indicates the feasibility of the all-in acid dyeing/essential oil microcapsule finishing process for ecofriendly, energy- and time-saving silk processing.
