Kid gloves are a gamble at best, as
one is rarely ever sure just how well
they are going to wear. When pur

pliable, with even, smooth seams.
If colored ones are bought turn in

though. If so, there are thin, weak
spots in the glove and it will not wear
The inside of the glove should not
be spotted with dye, but be even in
color and white, or nearly so.
If one finds a line of color along
the inside seam of gloves one may be
sure the gloves have been dyed after
making. This is often done to cover
up defects in skins.
