These balls are solid, clean, carded, felted wool and are approximately 2.5-3 inches in diameter. They are wonderful cat and dog toys, excellent play balls and are lovely just sitting in a basket.

This listing is for a single ball, although I have different colors

Please let me know before purchase what color you want and if you want one of the embellished ones. I will need to check my inventory. Right now my colors are limited to YELLOW, LIME and BRIGHT PINK over the next couple months I should have a bigger variety

A Sweet Wool Ball Story:
"At a recent art fair, a lovely older gentleman came by and purchased one of my felted wool balls. He had very carefully looked through the group and when he came up to pay I asked, as I usually do " Oh You found one you liked?" He replied that it was a sort of memorial and went on to tell me that it had been his dog's favorite toy (he had bought one from me a couple years ago) and that dog had passed away recently. He then went on to tell me that he was going to bring it home to his wife, who is living in an assisted living facility, where dogs are not allowed, and that it was for her."

General information...Wooly Balls

I have been making and selling felted wool balls for over 10 years and coining the name “Wooly Balls” for them has produced a great deal of fun at art fairs. 99 % of the people who pass my booth giggle and then stop to touch. Wool is so tactile and the balls are very enticing. The best comment came recently from a man who remarked to his friend “poor little Woolies.” When people cock their heads and ask what they are I innocently reply “They’re balls.” This usually elicits a smile and a conversation.

Dog and Cat owners have come back year after year for more. They are more durable than a tennis ball and are machine washable. I have sold them to jugglers, as stress balls, as exercise balls, as just throwing around balls. One customer bought 12 of them to pass around at a corporate meeting he was presiding over. One woman bought one to use to roll up and down between her back and the wall for a strength exercise. One customer spend three years picking out different colored balls to put in a large basket. They make excellent pincushions as well and I use them myself.

The balls are initially dry felted by needle with hundreds to thousands of needle thrusts, then wet-felted in the washing machine. I put them through a rigorous agitation and wash at least three times.
