Abstract: A lipase enzyme in combination with a protease enzyme has been used for dewaxing and degumming of silk and the combined effect of dewaxing and degumming on weight loss, wettability, dye uptake, yellowing, microscopic structure, handle and lustre has been studied. It is observed that the combined enzyme treated samples show the same weight loss, cleaner longitudinal surface and better wettability when compared with the Marseilles’ soap treated samples.
