Our wool Dryer Balls are felted from 100% wool. We use only wool grown on our farm and other small pre-qualified farms. Using wool from our farm and other farms that meet our standards enables us to offer a much higher quality control. We can safely say, "no chemicals, no dyes...just natural, humanely raised wool"
- Dryer sheets and fabric softeners coat the fibers of your clothing, inhibiting their ability to breathe and/or absorb.
- Dryer sheets and fabric softeners contain these chemicals:
Benzyl acetate: Linked to pancreatic cancer • Benzyl Alcohol: Upper respiratory tract irritant • Ethanol: On the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Hazardous Waste list and can cause central nervous system disorders • Alpha-Terpineol: Can cause respiratory problems, including fatal edema, and central nervous system damage • Ethyl Acetate: A narcotic on the EPA's Hazardous Waste list • Camphor: Causes central nervous system disorders • Chloroform: Neurotoxic, anesthetic and carcinogenic • Linalool: A narcotic that causes central nervous system disorders • Pentane: A chemical known to be harmful if inhaled.
Dryer Sheets take years to break down in the land fill.
Dryer Balls create loft in the dryer allowing the heat to distribute more evenly, hence reducing drying time, hence reducing electrical use, hence reducing carbon foot print AND electric bills!
Dryer Balls, with a minimum life of 1 year, used several times a week for 50 weeks of a year cost less than standard dryer sheets and definetly less than the more earth friendly dryer sheets.
Plastic dryer balls are, PLASTIC and not made in the USA and do not support your U.S farmer. We have also gotten customer reports of the plastic dryer balls damaging the sensors inside their dryer.
Wool Dryer Balls are much quieter than the plastic ones.
We package the balls in 3 regular size approximately 3.5" to 4" diameter (minimum recommended for results) and 6 for twice the benefit!
Now, new to our line up, Mega Wool Dryer Balls. The only complaint we ever get about the dryer balls is the dog or cat steels them or they get lost in a sheet, shirt, and various other hiding places. Our Mega Wool balls will eliminate the "lost dryer ball" syndrome and we feel do twice the work. Each ball is made exactly the same just twice as much wool. The size, 4.5"-5" in diameter.
And, last but far from least, our Multi Packs. Our flock is about 80% white sheep, just natural genetics. The good news is our sheep also provide a bunch of natural colors of wool, browns, greys, butta, and other shades. It's a personal preference but do know, the color will not have any effect on your clothing. If you will permit us we will fill each order based on color availabilty.
