Wool dryer balls replace those toxic dryer sheets and chemical-laden fabric softeners (or those nasty plastic dryer balls!) for naturally softer clothes with less static. The more you use, the better the results. Add just a few drops of essential oil to the dryer balls for a wonderful, natural scent. Cloth diaper safe!
All of the dryer balls are handmade and are wet felted twice and needle felted three times for amazing durability. I use only wool roving to make our dryer balls – they are not made of yarn, which WILL unravel in your dryer if not made properly.
These dryer balls will last for years and years, are colorfast and contain nothing but wool. The dryer balls are made with a particular blend of wool that I have chosen which is very low-pill.
These are very generously sized, with each ball weighing appromixately 1.25 oz and approximately 9.5 inches in circumference. This set of 4 is excellent for average (medium) size loads of laundry.
Some condensation may occur during shipping. This is a normal occurrence. You can place the dryer balls in the dryer or in the sun to dry them out, though they will dry out after the first use.
So what are dryer balls, anyway? If you’re not already acquainted, let us bring you into the fold—the softest, fluffiest fold ever:
They’re quick-dry marvels... Start with three dryer balls and your laundry will dry about 25% faster. Add more, and the whole thing happens even quicker.
Clean, green machines... Dryer balls are an eco-friendly swap for fabric softener and dryer sheets, which often contain potentially toxic chemicals that can coat your laundry and irritate skin. If you’d like to add in some scent, dab a few drops of your favorite essential oil on the dryer balls, and they’ll share the fragrance as they spin.
Wrinkle smoothers... Dryer balls keep wet clothes from bunching together, and the more your clothes move, the less wrinkly they’ll come out!
Lint and static zappers... While they soak up moisture and heat, they create a mild humidity within your dryer that keeps clothes from over-drying (which can lead to static and lint). You’ll feel the difference in your clothes, and see the difference in your lint trap.
Softness boosters... The dryer balls’ gentle friction on every fiber helps relax the fabric until...voila! Everything feels softer to the touch.
Long-lasting spin-cycle pals.... Dryer balls can be used over and over and over again—for up to 1,000 loads.
