Wool Dryer Balls

I happened upon another blog in which the blogger talked about making dryer balls out of wool yarn. I had never heard that people have used wool in the dryer to fluff the clothes and eliminate the need for dryer sheets. Well, that is all the information I needed to search the internet until I happened upon some simple instructions for creating my own dryer balls. Here is a photo of 3 of the 9 I made. This is a fast project, although it did take some time to wash and dry on "hot" after making 1/2 of the balls, then wash and dry when they were finished to completely shrink/felt them. I made 3 for me and 3 each for my daughter and daughter-in-law. If you are intested, just google "wool dryer balls" and you will find instructions. The inportant thing is that THEY WORK!!
