In this study, wool fibers are treated with low temperature plasma, chlorination, polymer deposition, and their combinations. The treatments are classified into four categories for easy discussion. After the treatments, the surface properties in term of feltability, fiber damage, and dyeability are assessed and quantitatively discussed, and the relationships between the different properties are statistically assessed.
