You Will Need...
- 100% wool yarn, nylons or pantyhose
Step by Step Instructions
Wrap yarn around three of your fingers about twenty times, then wrap it around the middle of those loops about twenty times. Then start wrapping around the wad of yarn until it starts resembling a ball shape. Keep wrapping until the ball is the size you want, then tuck the end under a couple strands.
One skein of yarn makes approximately four balls.
Then you need to felt the balls, so tie each ball up in a leg of some nylons, knotting after each ball so they don’t touch each other.
Then you just throw your snake thingy into the dryer and the balls come out fused together.
Toss the yarn balls into the dryer with your wet clothes in place of a dryer sheet and let them work their magic.
