Felted wool tumble dryer balls - lilacs

Felted wool tumble dryer balls - lilacs
Love this


I’ve had such fun making these and I hope you enjoy using them. These tumble dryer balls are 100% pure wool and made from a combination of raw fleece, up-cycled wool garments and wool yarn, felted together to make a firm ball. We supply a set of 4 balls in a drawstring bag.
Tumble dryer balls are great for speeding up the drying process by separating items of laundry, allowing better warm air flow. They also smooth out creases, soften towels and can reduce static. Being made from pure wool means that these dryer balls reduce your use of plastics or non-recyclable dryer sheets and as the wool absorbs moisture from your laundry, you save electricity. The balls can be used over and over again, will not release any toxic chemicals into your dryer and when they reach the end of their useful life you can pop them in your compost bin.
This funky set of fleece balls are made from a mixture of raw fleece and Icelandic wool. The decoration features spots and swirls. The felting process shrinks the yarn and means it will not unravel. They are supplied in a coordinating drawstring bag.
Being hand made, the balls vary a little in size. They are generally a bit bigger than a tennis ball and weigh about 50g. They may not be perfectly spherical!


I love experimenting with the materials I have. This is such a great way to use sheep’s fleece and is fun to do.
