How to make a hot pad with small felted balls

Felting is so easy and everyone can do it!

In this DROPS video we show how to make a hot pad with small felted balls in DROPS Alaska.

Wind the yarn around two fingers, after a couple rounds, remove yarn from fingers and continue winding around the yarn until you have a ball. Keep winding the yarn around and around until you have the size on the ball you want.
We show how to make two different sizes, but we make the hot pot with the smallest size
Place the balls in a thin stocking and put it in the washing machine with a detergent without enzymes and optical bleach. Are there many stockings with balls, one can add every single stocking in a laundry bag / new stocking, so not all stockings twirl together.
Wash at 40 C/104F with normal spin but no pre-wash, at subsequent wash. Sew balls together until you have the size you want for the hot pad. The hot pad can be wash later at regular wool programme.
