Research was carried out into the use of proliposomes as an auxiliary product in dyeing wool and polyester. It was found that the use of proliposomes permits wool dyeing at temperatures 15*C lower than in traditional processes, helps to eliminate salts from the dye bath and reduces contaminants in waste water. The proliposomes can be used either incorporating dyes as dyeing auxiliaries or incorporating other auxiliaries to increase their effectiveness. The woollen fabric was softer to the touch after dyeing with proliposomes.
