Summary The main purpose of this study was producing conductive wool fabric applying carbon nanotubes. Raw and oxidized wool samples were treated with carbon nanotubes in the impregnating bath in the presence of citric acid as a crosslinking agent and sodium hypophosphite as a catalyst while sonicating them in the ultrasonic bath. Electrical resistance, washing durability, and color variation of treated samples were assessed. Through SEM images, the surface morphology of treated samples was studied confirming the surface coating through carbon nanotubes. According to the results, the electrical resistance of treated wool with carbon nanotubes reduced substantially. However, the single-walled carbon nanotubes are more useful to increase the conductivity. In addition, the wool color changed into gray after the treatment.
