|Abstract:||A proteolytic enzyme, papain, has been used for bio-polishing of mulberry silk. Improvement in lustre, with no significant change in absorbency, flexural rigidity and crease recovery, due to the cleaning of the fibre surface by the enzyme is reported. A chemometric experimental design is used with two variables and five levels.|
