Wool Dryer Balls are a great tool to have for laundry day, helping your clothing dry faster while replacing dryer sheets and fabric softener. Additionally, they help reduce electricity usage, soften clothes, and preserve the lifespan of your clothing. Considering that dryers are one of the most energy-consuming appliances in the home, reducing their energy use is a huge way to decrease your carbon footprint. Tested to last for 1000+ loads, these dryer balls are well worth the investment!

Handmade in Ontario, Canada of pure felted wool sourced from Merino sheep at a Farmers Cooperative in Uruguay, the raw wool is minimally processed and washed with mild environmentally friendly detergent. No harsh chemicals, perfumes, or dyes are ever used in the creation of the dryer balls.

Merino sheep are regarded as having some of the finest & softest wool of any sheep, they’re bred and raised predominantly for wool. The Uruguayan wool industry is committed to achieve the highest standards of sheep care. The natural fibre is produced by healthy sheep under the best available animal husbandry practices. The sheep providing this wool live healthy, free range lives, and are never subjected to sheep dips, mulesing, or any other cruel practices common in collecting wool.

How to Use

Simple Ecology recommends using 3 dryer balls for small and medium laundry loads and up to 6 dryer balls for larger loads. For a fresh scent, place 2 to 3 drops of your desired essential oils onto each ball, allowing them to sit for 10 minutes before being placed into the dryer. As static cling is often caused by over drying clothes, reduce your drying time by 5-10 minutes, clothes should be barely damp when removed to avoid static.

Care Instructions

Wool dryer balls can be washed! Simply throw them in your next load of laundry or hand wash them.

Note that wool dryer balls can last 1000+ loads, but when they do unravel, feel free to compost them!
