Ball of wool detail.png

A Ball of wool is used in the Crafting skill to create jewellery. It can also be used to make some items on a loom. It is created by using wool with a spinning wheel, which grants a player 2.5 Crafting experience.

At level 1 Crafting, two balls of wool can be used to make a strip of cloth at a loom, giving 12 Crafting experience, which can be used to make wizard equipment and is an item in several quests. (This is not to be confused with the bolt of cloth, a Construction item.) A ball of wool is also required to string amulets, giving 4 Crafting experience. Members with at least level 80 Magic may alternatively use the lunar spell String Jewellery to string amulets without using balls of wool, provided they have competed Lunar Diplomacy.

Balls of wool were formerly used in the quest Sheep Shearer, but players must now gather 20 balls of black wool to prevent people from simply buying balls of wool for an easy quest completion.

Balls of wool can also be used on your cat to play with them, which is one of the ways of preventing a kitten from running away out of loneliness. This will not consume the ball of wool.

Balls of wool are required to weave any of the 9 milestone capes at a loom. For each cape, one ball of wool is needed for per level requirement; that is, one is needed to make the Milestone cape (10), two to make the Milestone cape (20), and so on.
