Natural Wool Dryer Balls
Wool laundry balls - set of 5 (2 oz each)
These non-toxic, hypoallergenic, pure wool dryer balls are made by a young lady in Idaho from roving from her father's alpacas. Try them instead of dryer sheets for softer, fluffier clothes, reduced wrinkles and static, and reduced drying time. The same set can be used for years, for 1000 loads or more, and, unlike liquid fabric softener, they won't reduce absorbency in towels or cloth diapers.
*Made with roving, not yarn
*Save time and money
*Sturdy reusable fabric bag
As an alternative to dryer sheets, wool balls for the dryer are an eco friendly and safer option. As they are heated during the drying cycle, they will not emit toxic chemicals or leave a chemical residue in your dryer or on your clothes. In fact, because there is nothing in them but pure wool, they are perfectly safe and you may find that they serve as sufficient entertainment for your toddler or house pet while you are folding the laundry.
These are made with only 100% pure alpaca wool roving, and not wool yarn, so there is no chance of them unraveling. After a few uses, individual hairs may stick out and wont cause any harm, but can be easily trimmed off with scissors if you like. I package them in a sturdy cotton bag with a drawstring.
Simply toss into the dryer with your laundry. For a fresh scent, a drop or two of pure essential oil can be added to the balls before the cycle. (I do use the essential oils, but if you suspect this may pose a fire risk, please use your own judgement.)
