Felted Wool Dryer Balls

Recently I heard that felted wool balls are great alternative to dryer sheets. Apparently they reduce your drying time, soften your laundry, and eliminate static cling. There are places like Stoney Mountain Farm who sell handmade wool balls made from the wool grown on their farm. But for folks who want to try their hand at making their own, there are some good tutorials online. Diane Gilleland recently posted pictures of ones she made using a tutorial by Judy Coates Perez. Both ladies offer great advice and pretty pictures, like the one above by Judy. I suppose for the dryer, I would use natural, undyed wool. Can’t wait to try this and see how well it works.

Wool dryer balls ROCK! No plastic chemicals and do not fall apart at all. I bought mine from a mom at http://www.wooldryerballs.com and they are still going strong in my dryer over a year later! Hers are made different than the raveled ones that come apart after 1-2 month use I found out the hard way..ahhhh! And hers are 100% dye free! These soften by friction on your clothing (without pilling laundry!)and they speed up the drying time. We have saved alot of money using them!
