Dryer balls are the future in laundry care.  Reusable, eco friendly, and now you can make them personal by choosing your own colors to make them with!  Read my blog post on the Joy of  Motion Guester Designer page to read about how to use them, and the difference between alpac and wool!


Skill Level: Intermediate


  • Approximately 32 yards of 100% alpaca, or 100% wool, per ball (I used a double strands of Bremont Joana Brushed Yarn, if you chose this method double your yards or your skeins, whichever you prefer). When making wool balls I use Patons Classic Wool
  • 4mm hook
  • Yarn Needle
  • 5-6 oz of roving will stuff 2 balls, 100% alpaca or 100% wool. Esty is a great place to find this material. Here are a few stores I use, and their prices are great!
  • Felted Sky Studio, Wyoming Alpacas


  • • Each ball will be approximately the size of a soft ball, maybe a little smaller depending on tension and felting.
  • • Each ball will weigh approximately 2.5 oz
