I have officially just invented the most fluffy furry WOOLTOP Pompom EVER!

Stop what you are doing everyone! I have a very important announcement to make!
Today I figured out that if you use carded Wooltops to make a pompom, it's extremely fast, extremely soft and furry and extremely amazing! Read on to find out how...

Start with just ONE tiny metre of merino wooltops (usually used for felting or spinning.) And a pompom maker! That's all! ANY wool tops will do - but here I used our house blend "Phantasmagorical" (£4.80 for 100g will make about 4 pompoms!)

Split the merino wooltop length in half lengthways and wrap half around the left side of the pompom maker and half around the right side, tucking in the ends. It's so fluffy and bulky - that's all you'll need :-)

Secure the pompom maker and then start to snip! All the way around. As you do - the pompom will magically come to life!



Next, secure the new furry wooltop pompom with some strong string and tie it REALLY REALLY tightly. I used our candy twist twine here:

Carefully release your new fabulous pompom...



It's the furriest, quickest, most fabulous pompom ever! Ever so soft and really LUSH!


The last thing to do is give it a trim (my favourite bit) - and then it's ready to hang! Imagine a Christmas tree full of these :-)
