A use for all fiber

5 October 2014 - The fall craft show season is in full swing. 

This weekend I will be at the Vista School in Hershey, PA.

Hours ~ 9 Am – 3 PM

Handicapped-accessible

Food Stand on premises

  In preparation for the show I have been busy making dryer balls.   

Felted Dryer Balls

    Due to repeated requests, I began making these a year ago and have been using them with my own laundry ever since.  I have not bought dryer sheets since I first threw a few of these felted balls into my dryer. They work well to replace the chemical-loaded commercial dryer sheets. 

This is a good use for “seconds” – that fiber which is not soft enough to be made into yarn.  As I am always looking for a use for my seconds, I am glad that I gave these a try. 

Like most alpaca farmers who make these handy and economical little balls, I find that I sell them as fast as I can make them.
