Ahh, you see, the point isn’t that someone couldn’t make a larger lint ball, it’s that no-one has done this (and especially not in this manner) before.

In other words, it’s not the product, it’s the marketing. Happens a lot in ‘conceptual’ art (Don’t get me started on Tracy Emin.)

Sadly I don’t have any dryer lint to make a lint ball with. I use my dryer lint to make yarn out of. (I’ve also seen recipes to make lint into paper.)

My brother-in-law used to make paper.  He has us give him the lint from a pink cottom comforther and he worked into something that was very beautiful.  Synthetic lint doesn’t have the same beauty.  Can’t believe I just wrote that.

Rain, I would love it if you could tell me how you make yarn out of your lint! I’m a knitter who is also an aspiring spinner, and I have ton’s of dryer lint that could be put to good use!

I actually have made paper out of lint back in my highschool art class. I did it to be cheeky (we were supposed to use the provided wood pulp), but I ended up getting an A for my “ingenuity”
