Wool dryer balls speed up drying time by tossing the clothes around in the dryer, absorbing moisture, spreading the heat, and preventing static electricity. The wool dryer balls work by bouncing their way in between wet layers of clothing that would otherwise stick together or clump. They are a wonderful alternative to dryer sheets or other similar products.
The continuous separation of the layers of clothing allows the warm air from the dryer to dry the clothes more quickly and evenly. These wool dryer balls also absorb some of the moisture, adding a second benefit of drying.
Each would dryer ball is ethically hand felted from 100% New Zealand wool.
Our wool dryer balls are the best eco-friendly alternative to dryer sheets or plastic balls, since they are 100% natural, they don't release any chemicals during the drying process.
If you miss the lovely fragrance you had when using dryer sheets, try this much healthier and better alternative: Add a few drops of your favourite essential oil to each of the dryer balls or spray them with your favourite natural room or clothing spray (ask us for options). Give them time to absorb the oil over night and they'll be ready for the next load! You'll notice a subtle, non-toxic fragrance in your clean, soft laundry.
