This post is a detour from the typical quilting/sewing topics but to those of us that like fiber in the form of fabric, many of us also like fiber in skeins.
I came across this idea through Lifehaker. Since I have a lot of allergies and the typical fabric softeners and dryer sheets are not an option for me, I wanted to give this a try.
Wrap the yarn into a tennis size balls, I was able to get 3 balls from one skein.
Tie into an old stocking and throw in your washer and dryer to “felt” them
Throw them in your dryer with your clothes. I have found they work fairly well. I do find that they don’t prevent static cling with a dryer full of towels. Other than that, I am pleased.
Enjoy the Journey, Jackie
