'If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life: it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, and the joy of growth.' - Mitsugi Saotome

Reduce Allergens At Home!

Materials: *3 oz natural wool roving *Latex rubber gloves *Large bowl with warm water and dishsoap *Wax lined tray *Embroidery thread and needle 3 ounces of roving should yield approx 50 balls, which can create a 10 foot garland.

I. With gloved hands (you'll thank us later), pullout about a palmful of roving and dunk into warm water. 2. Begin rubbing the wet roving between palms in a circular motion. After a few moments it will begin to stick to itself and create a ball. 3. Continue rolling until the ball feels solid and is approx I" thick. To make thicker simply add more wool and repeat motions.

4. Set completed balls on a wax lined tray and allow to dry about 12-24 hours. 5. In the meantime, work out your color pattern. Measure out embroidery thread and add an extra 2 feet for each end. 6. Once dry, thread balls in desired pattern and tie off each end. We chose to tie one end and wrap the other around a wooden spool for a little versatility.
