  2. Xine-

    Glove DYEING = means you SPOT the formula in OXO style or form . ..onto the wool . . .
    then. . .
    you put on rubber gloves and squish the dye water around with the gloves on . . .
    making sure you cover all the white areas of the wool . . . . . .you could use a potato masher but I prefer rubber gloves . .it gets the job done faster . ..
