The Fibre Garden : Felted Balls
Showing all 8 results
These are 100% wool felted balls, very firmly made, uniform and dense. We don’t know what breed of wool is used.
What do you do with these? Out customers are doing all kinds of things, and their ideas for them keep surprising us! One lady bought three sizes to make snowmen for her Christmas tree. Some people use them for making jewellery. Felters can use the smaller sizes to add texture and interesting shapes to wall hangings and other projects. Some spinners wind wool around the medium sized balls for plying.
Use these in their natural colour or dye them using any wool dyes (or food colouring and vinegar) but be sure to soak them in hot soapy water for a couple of hours are they probably will float and bob around at the top of the dyepot.
The large 8cm size can be used as they are for dryer balls. Just stick three of them in the dryer and they are supposed to decrease drying time by as much as 30% and also reduce static, just like a dryer sheet. Some people put a drop or two of essential oil (such as lavender) on them to give the laundry a fragrance.
The 5 or 6cm size can be used as a core for making dryer balls as well, either wet felting or needle felting more wool over top.
