How to Make Wool Dryer Balls
Dryer balls help to cut down on the time your clothes have to spend in the dryer. They help to separate the clothes and eliminate the static. If you do not want to buy them or you want a more natural option, it is simple to make your own. All you need is some wool yarn, or roving, and a pair of panty hose. The wool will mat together in the wash and the fibers will grab themselves, forming a dense, thick felt. The dryer balls are easy to make and will felt more with continuous use.

Using the roving
The wool yarn
Place the balls in the panty hose and tie a piece of the acrylic yarn on the side of each ball. You must use acrylic or some other synthetic yarn because this is not supposed to felt.
Toss the entire panty hose into the washer and dryer. The hotter the water and the hotter the dryer is, the faster the wool will felt. If washed along with a regular load of laundry, they will also felt but may take longer.
The second layer
Place the balls back in the stocking the same way you did before and throw in the washer and dryer one more time.
