    I would not recommend any dyeing to the wool as there is a possibility that it gets rub off during wear.

    A possible suggestion is to have a good clean and test if there is any rub off from existing non-fading areas.

    If there is a sign of coloring transfer to a white cotton towel then the possibility of totally saturating it with Hydrator-3.3 and redistributing any excess dyestuff to the faded areas may be a possibility.

    Before going into improving the coloring, the initial proper cleaning is the first step.
