So many people expressed an interest in learning how to felt at Market Days, that we decided to have a felting class – in time for Holiday giving. We’ll be focusing on our popular sheep-faced dryer balls, but will help you felt anything you want to try.

Expect the class to last for 1-½ hour and you will take home the dryer balls you finish and everything you need to keep on felting.

Dryer balls are a natural replacement for dryer sheets. They fluff and soften your clothes, reduce static, lint and wrinkles, and leave no chemical residues. They reduce drying time by keeping fabrics from clumping and letting the hot air circulate more efficiently. Easier on your electric bill and the environment.
They are great for drying baby clothes, baby diapers, micro fiber, nylon or spandex. Since they leave no waxy residue, they will not reduce absorbancy of your dish or bath towels.
They are durable lasting for years. If they start to become shaggy or loose, you can use this wet-felting method to refresh them: tuck them into a nylon hosiery foot, wrap rubber bands close to the ball on both sides, then run them through the washer and dryer to ‘re-felt’ them.
They are non-toxic and so, safe to keep around pets or children.
You need two or three per load.
