I lucked out and found some 100% wool yarn at the thrift store- but any wool yarn will do (like, from the craft store) as long as it's pure wool!

To start a Dryer Ball, wrap the yarn around your fingers a few times- then, slip it off and keep winding into a ball shape. I made mine about the size of a tennis ball, or a little smaller.

When you're done, use an embroidery needle to tuck the tail into the ball until it disappears. Now, do this again and again until you have 4 or 5 balls!

Tuck each ball into some stockings/nylons, knotting the nylon in between each ball. Now you're ready to begin the felting process, which takes place in your washer/dryer! Click HERE to get all the details!
