Mordanting with alum was carried outrnby three different methods i.e. pre, simultaneous and post mordanting each inrntwo mediums i.e. alkali and aqueous. The dye fastness of dyed samples has beenrninvestigated using gray scale assessment method. The results for dyeing arernvery promising and hopeful.rnrn
