The present work deals with the dyeing of mulberry silk yarns with Artocarpus lacucha to develop variety of harmonizing natural shades using copper sulphate, ferrous sulphate and stannous chloride as mordants. The dyes were extracted in acid, alkaline and neutal medium and dyeing was performed at 70°C. The extent of dyeing was studied on the basis of dye uptake as well as K/S values. Highest dye intensity was obtained when alkaline medium was used for dye extraction. The mordant enhances the fastness properties. The highest colour value of 3.0 was observed for the combination Monkey jack dye mordanted with Copper sulphate. Silk yarn dyed with bark of monkey jack along with different mordants produced shades of brown and beige colour.
