felted wool dryer balls.jpg
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.

I’m a word nerd who loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for untouched powder fields and ideal alpine lakes.

I was an editor for the first 40 volumes of MAKE. The maker movement provides me with endless inspiration, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. Covering art is my passion — after all, art is the first thing most of us ever made.
