      Very interesting about the sheep's wool rejecting etc. Another thing I didn't know. I learn something new every day!

      My understanding of the process is that a pad is best for application
      and a brush for wiping away the access. The sheeps wool apparently
      contains a lanolin that rejects the dusting powder (thus facilitating
      transfer) and prevents accumulation. As far as I have found, no one
      manufacturers anything like this anymore. And, besides, I really like
      having the most appropriate tool; for as you know, "inferior tools
      corrode the spirit"!
