Here is what you need:
100% wool yarn (you can find this at any crafty store. Walmart has some. I purchased mine at Michael's).
nylons, or tights
|I got a two 3.5 ounce skein of 100% wool. I made a total of four wool dryer balls. I could easily get another 2-3 more balls out of each skein. I paid $4 for each skein.|
Slip it off your fingers and wrap around the yarn another 15-20 times. I almost looks like a bow.
Pinch the ends together and start wrapping the yarn around and around into a ball. Make sure you wrap it around nice and tight.
|Leave a little tail of yarn.|
When the ball is about 5-6 inches around, cut the yarn leaving a couple inches and tuck under and around other stands of yarn to secure it.
Continue with the steps above for as many balls as you want to make.
Take a pair of tights, or nylons. Take the first ball and place in the nylons at the foot area. Take a small piece of embroidery thread and tie it off (double knot) and continue this with each ball. Do not use the wool thread to tie it off because it will felt in the process - you do not want this!
Now you have complete dryer wool balls.
How awesome is that! No more expensive dryer sheets.
