I made a couple of videos to show how I go about wet felting wool balls a while back (with needle felted embellishments too). I finally got around to featuring the sources, videos, and such on my blog. It took me a number of years and many many balls to fine-tune my approach, so I hope that it saves somebody else time and inspires folks in the process. I find that the wool balls are fantastic for gentle play with babies/young children and for indoor play without risk of breaking things. They're also 100% natural and much-loved in Waldorf and other nature-loving craft circles. Anyway, here's a link to the post:

That looks like a great way to make wet felted balls.  I will have to give it a try.

Thanks for taking the time to make the video.

Thanks a lot for the tutorial - This may be a stupid question but I've never done wet felting before.  How do you dry them after?
