Before I knew I wanted to make dryer balls, I knew that I wanted to work with wool. Specifically, I knew that I wanted to have a particular experience: the FEELING of the moment when you tear the paper off of a bolt of freshly carded wool… and it goes POOF… and sort of busts out of the paper. I was determined to have THAT moment, in all of its quiet awesomeness be a big part of my life… and so it started.
After a cringe worthy late night call to a woolen mill (you mean it’s their HOUSE too? no machine? oh…noooooo…..:/ ) complete with a not entirely thought-out line of questioning, “So, do you have wool that is…erm….wrapped in paper? Like, around the middle?” (Really.) Hint: THEY DID. The woolen mill people love me now… So, cringe worthy but not disastrous, yes? Wool and I, we were meant to be. New found love of wool met with lifelong love of nature, and commitment to sustainability – Bog Berry Dryer Balls was born.
