I own MoonShadow Threads which isn't really around anymore... Well it is, but I am taking an extended break from it due to personal issues. BUT I plan on getting it back up and running soon.

    Wool Dryer Balls

    Post by Jaime Rose on Sat Sep 21, 2013 3:00 pm

    I stopped using dryer sheets several months ago, in my attempt to remove chemical products from our home. I've been wanting to make wool dryer balls, and decided to do that today. I had some scratchy wool that I didn't want to use for something to wear, and thought this would  be a great use for them.

    Dryer balls remove wrinkles from the clothes, and separate the clothes, allowing more air to circulate, reducing drying time, plus, if you want to add a scent to your clothes, you can add a few drops of essential oils to the dryer balls, and that way, you are not adding any synthetic scents to the process.

    I have 5 of them felting in the washing machine right now, and I hope they turn out well. I'll update when they're done! Smile

    I made some years ago with lion brand wool and they didn't felt very well. They fell apart in the dryer about a month later. Lol I need to fix them and start using them again. I think I might crochet some to try. What yarn are you using?

    I used some Italian wool (Lane Borgosia) that was given to me a few years ago, and Paton's Classic Wool. Make sure you're using wool that isn't supposed to go in the washing machine. I put them through 2 wash cycles, in with loads of laundry, and then put them in the dryer, to finish felting. I've been using them all afternoon in the dryer, and I'm in love. Clothes that are synthetic fibers are coming out with no static electricity! The clothes are coming out so soft, and I'm almost disappointed that all the laundry is done. Almost. Smile

    I would be going crazy without my dryer. Hope you get yours back soon!

    Here is a photo of the ones I made yesterday:



    Here is a close-up for a better view of the felting:
