We used the highly technical finger wrapping method. Just wrap your wool round four fingers til you think it’ll make a satisfyingly full pom-pom. Thread the end of the wool through the middle of your fingers, yank it off, wrap it round the middle of the strands a few times then tie a knot. Get out yer scissors, snip the looped ends and fluff into a beautiful little pom-de-pom. Give it a haircut to even it out, smile in triumph and start again. Littler hands will make more petite poms.
Threaded together into a rainbow garland they brighten the playroom on those greyer days.
