I also picked up some Darn Good Yarn sari silk ribbon yarn that I am currently playing with,

More dryer balls.

I've been really pleased with the results using these wool dryer balls with my laundry. I've also had positive feedback from some people who have bought them from me. Here are some recently made dryer balls. Two sets are wool yarn and the others are wool roving (which felts very well) and yarn.

I sell the dryer balls for $15 (CAD) for a set of three.
