Do any of you make wool dryer balls? I want to try and I'm looking for the best online tutorials and info about what yarn is best

How many do you use? I've made two and use them, but wonder if more would be better.

Thank you! So doing this

Ignore typos...probably nursing, typing with one finger on my left hand while wrangling two toddlers. yeah, I'm that good.

I read that 10 is good number for a regular sized dryer. The more the better. I have 3, made 4 and making 3 more I will see if that makes a difference in a bigger dryer once they are in.

Is there anything else that I can use instead of the sock/thigh? I don't have any that I could use (I only have one or two pairs that I wear)
