Felted Wool Dryer Balls

September 1, 2012 8 comments

Felting wool into dryer balls is a good alternative to using dryer sheets or adding fabric softener to your wash. Here are three dryer balls I felted and I have been using them now for over a month. I am happy to report that they worked wonderfully. I have no static cling and my clothes are soft after coming out of the dryer.

Apparently the felted wool balls not only help with static cling by moving around the clothes as they dry but it also may help with drying the clothes faster. I can’t say for sure but it seems as though my clothes aren’t taking as long to dry as normal. I am still hanging most of my clothes outside on the line but I have been using the felted dryer balls for our dress clothes in the dryer with great results.

Materials needed per ball:
2 ounces wool (Scrap pieces used)
1 small stone – quarter size

First step is to get a small stone about the size of a US quarter. The stone adds weigh and provides a firm base for the dryer ball center.

Just start wrapping wool scraps around the stone.
