Rosin is a plant extract that is made into a gelatinous power and sewn up into the bag. There is also something called a dry bag. Many people group the two together. A dry bag is a piece of cloth which has some type of absorbent material inside of it. When I as younger my mother used to make me and my friends dry bags from fabric of our favorite sports teams. She would put kitty litter in them and sew them up. The bowler would grip and shake the bag prior to their approach to absorb the sweat and oil on the Bowling hand.
