DIY Felted Dryer Balls
Small Bits of Acrylic Yarn – Caron Simply Soft shown
Crochet hook (any size) – Furls shown
Pantyhose or knee highs (old, any size, used, etc – just clean!)
First, roll the yarn into a tight ball. You’ll make one ball per skein – or you could make several smaller balls, it’s up to you!
When the skein is all wound into a ball, use the crochet hook to bury the end so it doesn’t come out.
Make sure there are no loose bits, and that it’s nice and even.
Insert the balls you’ve made into the hose, and tie each one separately using acrylic yarn as shown below. You can put as many in the hose as you like, just separate them with ties of scrap yarn.
Now, throw the whole thing in with your next few loads of whites! You want to wash them in hot water AND dry them on higher heat 3-5 times.
Finally, cut the scrap yarn, and release your new felted dryer balls! If any strings seem loose, just pop them back into the stocking and send them through the washer and dryer again.
Here are two finished – and one unwashed for comparison purposes!
You can now keep them right in the dryer to help your clothes dry faster! Fun, crafty, and green! Pin the image below to save this tutorial for when you’re ready!
