Natural felted wool allows you to soften clothes in one of the most natural ways possible. This set includes six handmade Wool Dryer Balls that will take the place of liquid fabric softeners and dryer sheets. Avoid harmful chemicals and toxic substances, but get the same results. When you place these wool dryer balls in with a load of laundry, they'll tumble around to soften fabrics, reduce wrinkles, eliminate static and shorten drying times. With the addition of some essential oil, you can even add fragrance without relying on irritating perfumes.
Use three or four balls when drying a small load, or use all six for medium and large loads. For anything bigger, using more than six will produce the best results. These Wool Dryer Balls are totally reusable, and they actually increase in ability over time. As pilling starts to occur, the little nubs will help massage clothing to remove loose lint, and make it softer. Due to the separation that occurs as they mix with your clothes, air will flow more efficiently, so everything will dry in less time. Stop wasting money on risky products, and switch to a safe and natural alternative that performs just as well, but leaves you with nothing to worry about.

Why This Product Is Good
Similar products are smaller, machine made, or constructed with inferior wool. These premium quality balls outperform others, and last for a long time. The natural, organic wool material will withstand constant use, and it'll actually improve with age. When you get a lower quality set, the balls will be softer and less durable, and you'll find that that fall apart easily, and wear out quickly. When you get this set instead, the performance will be guaranteed.
Others claim to be big, and many put XL or XXL or XXXL right in the name. At nearly 10 inches in circumference, these ones actually are extra large in size, so you'll actually reap the benefits that others can only claim. Larger balls result in more separation, so you get less static, less lint, and your clothing will dry faster when compared to other options.
Solid and Durable.
Try to save a few bucks elsewhere, and you may end up with inferior balls that have a core made from something besides wool, or ones made from wool yarn that's been wrapped up. Our high quality version is solid felted wool, so they will work better and last longer in comparison. You never have to worry about questionable material at the center, and you never have to worry about them unraveling to fall apart prematurely.
Unlike traditional products, these wool dryer balls don't need to be repurchased or refilled to continue working. Use them over and over again for one low price. You don't even need to think about them once the balls are in place. Just dry load after load, and leave the balls in place to act as a dryer sheet alternative.
A Renewable Alternative.
Plastic versions are made from petroleum, but these are made from natural wool. This makes them Eco-friendly in comparison. When you choose this set, you'll be switching to a reusable alternative to traditional fabric softeners, but you'll also be choosing a product made from 100% renewable materials.
Highly Effective Performance.
Incredibly efficient, these wool balls work as well, or better than chemical soaked alternatives. When you wash and dry your clothes, they will look just as soft and wrinkle free when you finish. You'll be amazed at how well these balls are able to mimic the abilities of regular liquid softeners and dryer sheets.
Reduced Drying Times.
Air inside your machine will flow better due to the separation of fabrics that occurs. As a result, it will take 20%-40% less time to complete the load. Save time and reduce energy usage when you start using this set.
Naturally Soften Fabrics.
As these Wool Dryer Balls move inside your dryer, the natural material will massage clothing to reduce stiffness. Instead of harsh liquids that ruin clothing over time, these natural alternatives will make clothing look and feel great with a simple, natural action.
The improved air flow combines with the wool material to avoid and reduce static build up. You don't need to leave your clothes coated in perfumes and residues in order to reduce static. These balls will naturally reduce static, and prevent fabrics from clinging.
The gentle agitation smooths out wrinkles to make clothes wearable right out of the dryer. As your dryer tumbles, the balls will spread out clothing and smooth the surface as it dries. You'll never have to deal with a lump of wrinkled clothes when the cycle finishes.
Because you'll leave your dryer on for less time, you'll use less electricity to get the same job done. This is good for the environment, but it also saves you money. With this set installed in your dryer, you may be able to reduce energy usage by as much as 25%.
Plastic dryer balls can make noise for a while, or a dull thud for the whole load. These ones are incredibly quiet from start to finish. You'll never hear them tumbling with your clothes, but you will easily see the result of having them in there.
Plastic or Wool?
Both versions of this product work very well, and both are pretty similar. There will be some clear differences between wool and plastic dryer balls, but which is best comes down to personal preference. These wool balls will be quieter than the blue ones for the full length of the load, and they're also made from a more Eco-friendly and renewable material. When looking at cost, the blue plastic ones
clearly have the advantage, and with those little spikes, they are more efficient, so you can use as few as two. Those little nubs also have the ability to massage better and remove more lint and wrinkles. Overall, dried clothes will look and feel pretty similar when using one or the other. If you're looking for the most natural and chemical-free option, wool is the way to go. If you're just in it to save money, and reduce effort, go for the blue plastic ones.
Why Use Them.
If you've ever read the ingredients that off-the-shelf softeners are made from, then you already know the answer. The harsh substances are hazardous to anyone's health, but they can be especially irritating to those with sensitive skin or allergies. On top of the carcinogens and toxic chemicals, traditional products are also pretty expensive, and they need to be replaced periodically. When you use this set of wool dryer balls instead, you only pay once, so the overall cost is much less, and you never have to worry about running out, or buying refills. Add to that the completely natural action, and their ability to do the same job in less time, and the choice is easy. Why throw away money or jeopardize your health when you could just as easily decide on this reusable alternative? These natural balls are completely hypoallergenic, and they can even be used by people with wool allergies because they don't shed so the fibers will never come into contact with their skin.
How They Work
Kind of like tennis balls, but without all of the green fuzz. When you toss them in with your clothes, and turn the dryer on, they will tumble with your laundry for the full drying cycle. As this takes place, the balls will separate each piece of clothing and allow air to flow in between. As this 6-Pack of Wool Dryer Balls tumble, they will massage fabrics to make them softer, and this same action will smooth wrinkles, and reduce static cling. Because the air will circulate better, everything will dry in less time to save money and speed up the process, but also preserve the material by avoiding unnecessary exposure to extreme heat. If you like the smell that traditional products provide, add a small amount of essential oil to one or more balls to give your clothes that freshly washed scent.
