Carver Creations: Dryer Balls and Wool


$10/pair plus shipping. I make my wool dryer balls a little differently. I crochet a wool ball and fill it with a ball of wool yarn. This prevents the ball from coming unraveled with use. These dryer balls are slightly larger (app. 3 inch diameter, 11 inches around, about 2.3 oz per ball) and heavier than a PVC dryer ball. Add 2, 3, 4 or more balls to each dryer load to reduce drying time and fluff up your laundry. They are an eco-friendly, fragrance-free alternative to PVC dryer balls, dryer sheets, or fabric softener. I will pick out two balls and ship them out to you.

I am now a licensed Sheepy Time Knitter! I can hand knit longies and shorties (sorry, I'm not licensed to do soakers yet). I will be charging more for hand knit customs for three reasons: I have to recuperate my licensing fee, I'm using more expensive yarns for the knitting, and it takes me longer to knit. I can't do the fancy design work in knitting yet, so if you want a monster or guitars or anything like that, you will need to order crocheted. I can do colorways with contrasting trim, simple stripes on the legs, cargo pockets, and ruffles (although I'd prefer to crochet you the ruffles instead of knit them). What's the difference between knit and crochet?
For hand-knit shorties, add $7 to the custom crochet price
For hand-knit longies, add $10 to the custom crochet price

Customs:
My waiting list is closed, but I will be stocking a crochet custom spot on The Chain Gang every month starting August 4. I can hand crochet, machine knit, and hand knit My crochet pattern is my own creation. It is worked in single crochet with a crotch gusset and extra room in the bootie for a good fit. I am a licensed Sheepy Time Knitter for pants and shorts.

How to measure for woolies
Feel Free to send me custom measurements

Payment
I can take funded pp, cc pp if you cover fees, and rme. I also love to trade. See the bottom of the post for my iso.

Got my woolies, now how do I take care of them?
