The way I've heard is similar to the one on the blog, except it's all wool. Wind the first ball of any felting wool, then put it in a nylon and through the washer/dryer. At this point you can scent it with an essential oil like tea tree or lavender. Then wind the rest of the felting wool around it and secure the tail. Put it in the nylon and through the washer/dryer 1-2 more times. Done!
