Organic Wool

Organic wool presents less harm than conventional wool production, as both the feed and forage for the sheep must be organic, and no pesticides or insecticides can be used to treat the sheep. Organic wool can be harvested yearly without harming the sheep, and does not involve toxic “sheep dips” where farmers drench the sheep in harmful chemicals. Organically raised sheep are housed in ways that prevent overgrazing, and are not dependent on antibiotics or other drugs, as they live in healthy conditions. Wool is highly absorbent, so it requires little water to dye the finished fabrics. Wool is odor resistant, so you can get away with skipping washes (and saving water!), plus when wool is untreated it’s biodegradable.

    These adorable dryer balls are the highlight of my laundry routine <3
    I truly do believe they make a difference in my drying time. Also these make absolutely PERFECT gifts! I love picking out which "animal" to give to each person and they're always excited to receive such a cute, sustainable product.
    Thank you to Friendsheep for making such a safe, fair trade product!

    They worked just as described! Used them to dry and fluff up my comforter. Found that these are so much better than tennis balls plus they reduced the drying time. Great investment in my opinion

    As advertised

    J.a.T. (verified owner)

    They work as advertised. And they’re super cute! Laundry is one of my least favorite tasks, but these little guys make it fun! I’ve used rosemary and lavender oils. Both worked well to freshen without being perfumy. I have noticed a bit more static than using typical dryer sheets, but its a brief minor inconvenience. I’ve already purchased sets for others. A great gift.

    Saves time, money and the earth

    Brightme3 (verified owner)

    I love everything about this product. I have had no issues with it at all, in fact my clothes come out with no static, fresh, and not wrinkled. I did also buy the essential oil so that might help with the freshness. I still dry my clothes using the same time but I think they do dry my clothes faster since I used to noticed that if I dried many towels together I would have to add a little time but lately I’ve been able to dry many towels with other stuff and I can keep my standard drying time. I love these little dryer balls and I would buy them again except I don’t think I will need to for a long time since they last forever! Also really glad (for the earth and for my pocketbook) that I don’t have to buy dryer sheets ever again!
