Wool Dryer Balls
When not in use, display them in a basket or bowl on the table for a beautiful, tactile (and non breakable!) accent. Apply essential oils and you have a lovely, soft scent diffuser. Apply essential oils to them before putting them in the dryer with your clothes and you'll have a delicious smelling load of fresh laundry.
The value in these dryer balls goes beyond the money you won’t be spending on dryer sheets. They’re an investment in our planet and in the health of your family.
Our dryer balls are NOT made of yarn, which eventually unravels. They are needle felted, and then wet felted. They take a little longer to make, but they are the best quality and will last you all of your laundry doing years.
These dryer balls are not the largest on the market – and that is a deliberate choice. Bigger is not always better! In this case, repeated use of larger, significantly denser dryer balls can stretch and damage fabric over time. We have carefully chosen the size of our dryer balls to be effective and safe for many years of use. Each dryer ball weighs roughly .8 oz and measures about 8 inches around.
How to Use
4-6 for a small load, 6-8 for a medium load, 8-10 for a large load. Our favorite way to use them is to put a few drops of essentials oils on them for fragrant clothes.
They come in a muslin bag – perfect for gift giving or just to store them
The core of each ball is freshly carded 100% wool batting from a family run mill. Colored sets are additional 100% wool from small family run companies. These dryer balls will last indefinitely, but should they become unusable, you can throw them into your compost bin.

In the past I’ve tried one dryer ball to help when drying things such as a down coat. I saw these 6 wool ones when refilling my dish soap on Refillery, almost passed them by due to the price. However, they will last a very long time and they should help cut down on drying time. So far I have to say shorter drying time is true! I just leave them in the dryer for every load, only needing to put my dryer on regular dry setting rather than “more dry”. Worth the investment already.
I have been using dryer sheets and switched to the wool dryer balls. My laundry feels clean, without any filmy feel and wasn’t wrinkled. Also had very little static. These are great!
