What You Need To Know About Wool Dryer Balls

laundry dried with wool dryer balls

Our all natural wool dryer balls are made of 100% premium New Zealand wool, and work on all fabrics and clothing. From how they work to how long they last, and how they compare to alternatives; here’s everything you need to know about wool dryer balls.


What do wool dryer balls do? AND How do dryer balls work?


They can cut your drying time in half

Wool dryer balls bounce around in the dryer acting as a tumble dryer softening ball, creating space between your clothing that allows the hot air from your dryer to circulate more efficiently through your load. Using 4-6 fluff and tumble dryer balls per load can decrease the time required to dry your clothes by up to 50%.


They will save you money

Each wool dryer ball is designed to last for over 1,000 loads. Depending on the amount of laundry you do, that’s anywhere between 2-5 years. Just think of the money you’ll save on dryer sheets and fabric softeners by using laundry softener balls instead; not to mention the smaller energy bill from shorter drying times!


They have no side effects

Unlike alternatives like drying with tennis balls or other plastic/rubber balls, wool dryer balls won’t leave a burnt rubber smell lingering in your dryer or on your clothing. They also don’t make loud banging sounds or damage your dryer when they are in use. Wool dryer balls are much longer lasting than DIY dryer balls made of wool yarn, which tend to unravel over time.


They get better with age

As each wool dryer ball ages it will begin to pill. The pills on your dryer ball will actually increase its surface friction, resulting in softer clothes for you. However, if the pills bother you, you can easily remove them with a lite razor or a sweater depiller.
