    Hi there, I thought I’d already posted this but can’t see it there!

    Anyway, I’m interested in finding someone who can make me some 100% (I think it must be felted) wool balls the size of a tennis ball or slightly smaller. I intend to use them for dryer balls.

    Anyone fancy it? Or anyone want to show me how to make them?

    Thanks for asking the question, Zippy, and that link to the tutorial, Luvin. We’ve had a fair bit of rain in Adelaide already this winter, and have had to use the dryer on occasions, mostly to get the last bit of damp out of the clothes. I’m going to give these balls a try, they look so easy to make!

    Does it work? Seems to be a great idea… do you have to dry the balls afterwards?

    i could donate a few jumpers that are almost there ;-). DH has forgotten to not put woollens in the machine occasionally.
