How to make Felted wool dryer balls. As they are a great alternative to dryer sheets as they don’t have strong fragrance or chemicals. They are easily and quickly made and are felted in your washer and dryer.
In fact you can throw them in with your next hot water load. For example Towels… Easy Peasy! Use yarns you already have, making them an excellent stash buster and they make really neat little last minute gifts too!
Here’s what you’ll need to make your own felted wool dryer balls:
100% wool yarn (each ball uses 110 yards of worsted weight Wool of the Andes by Knit Picks in “Silver” and “White”)
Small pieces of cotton yarn to tie the ends (make sure you use this for the ties and not the wool, as the ties would felt too!)
