FEATURES & BENEFITS
Hand Made in Canada, our Dryer balls are a nifty invention that save time and money!
No chemicals, perfumes or dyes are used to make them. Each ball is hand crafted using only Merino, Polworth or Corriedale wool – depending on the colour. They are tested to last for 500+ loads. Simply store them in your dryer between loads.
Attractively packaged in a boxed set of 3 wool balls.
HOW IT WORKS
Pure felted wool dryer balls absorb moisture in your dryer which helps maintain the humidity level. The balls bounce around creating air circulation between your clothing. The result is softer clothes that dried faster with less wrinkles and static cling. They eliminate the need for dryer sheets and fabric softener. We recommend using 3 for a normal sized load and 6 for bulky items. Pure Wool Dryer Balls are excellent for fluffing up cloth diapers, down jackets, duvets, towels & blankets. They will not harm your clothing or your dryer & the wool does not rub off or unravel.
- 1 box of 3 balls
- 2 boxes of 3 balls
- While using 3 dryer balls is great, 6 balls dry large loads even faster.
- To avoid lost balls, keep them in your dryer between loads.
- Our coloured wool is the natural sheep colour. It will not transfer onto wet clothes.
- Wool is biodegradable. Plant them in the garden where they decompose, releasing valuable nutrients.
Add a couple drops of essential oil(s) of choice to each dryer ball to softly scent the load.
Wool Dryer Balls are any safe alternative to chemical dryer sheets that work by coating the fabric fibres with toxic chemicals that build up over time. They work to reduce static cling by absorbing moisture from clothing in the dryer, maintaining a more humid environment and, therefore, cutting down on static build up. However they will not eliminate static cling completely, especially when clothing is over dried for example in a dryer without a moisture sensor.
Here are some ideas to help reduce static cling:
1. Reduce your drying time by 5-10 minutes
When items are completely dry and no moisture remains, this invites static electricity into the mix. Allow clothes to dry only until they’re slightly damp – tumbling around for excessive amounts of time in the dry heat increases static and increases your energy costs. Many dryers allows you to set the level of drying using a sensor to tell how dry the clothes are. You can set it to less dry vs. normal and find that most of the clothes are dry enough to fold. Hang the shirts and pants which also means they are faster to iron later.
2. Dry Synthetic fabrics separately
Synthetic fabrics like nylon and polyester fleece are usually the main culprits of static cling. When dried separately, garments made from synthetic fabrics aren’t given the opportunity to charge up all your other clothing. If that isn’t feasible, consider pulling synthetic fabrics out of the dryer early and hanging them on an indoor or outdoor rack to finish drying.
