Making Felt Dryer Balls

In a few hours, you can make a set of colorful felted dryer balls that will last for years, replacing fabric softener sheets. They work just as well, if not better. They are a wonderful way for knitters and crocheters to use up leftover scraps of yarn, and they make great gifts. Cats and dogs love them, so make extra if you have pets who like to chew. No crafting experience is necessary.

During the workshop you will wind 100% wool yarn into tennis-sized balls and prepare them for felting. Afterwards, you will need access to a washing machine with hot water to complete the process.

Supplies needed: 200 to 500 yds of 100 % wool yarn (NOT washable/superwash) in any colors other than white. One wool darning needle or crochet hook. Old pantyhose or thin socks. A few yards of cotton string.

Supply kits will be available at cost (approximately $15-20, enough to make 4 to 6 balls).

This workshop will meet on Zoom, 2-3 hours.
