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.

Compostable

These products are declared compostable by the manufacturer, but may not third-party certified.

    I LOVE these dryer balls!

    Margarita (verified owner)

    I’ve been eyeing wool dryer balls for a while, and decided to take the plunge!

    I LOVE how the product is sourced, the responsibility taken to create them, and how it empowers Nepalese artisans who make them. These 6 balls in a pack work perfectly in my medium to large laundry loads to get my clothes dryer faster, AND my clothes are fluffier!

    It has a slight sheep smell to them, but no, it’s not strong, and it doesn’t transfer to my clothes. You can always add essential oil drops to them if you want to. There are much larger ones on the market, but from what I understand, those can get noisy in the dryer. These WORK so well, and are durable. I know they’re going to last me a long time, and best thing is… I no longer need to buy dryer sheets!

    I don’t typically buy non-vegan zero waste products of this kind, but after reading about the company and how they pay their workers/source their materials, I just had to get them. They work super well and are very durable.

    I really like the idea of this product, but the balls do have a strong smell to them. I have read that you can add essential oils to them, but I have not yet tried that. Overall I am happy with them, and hopefully the essential oils work!

    These definitely reduce the static in my laundry, which is impressive given how dry it is where I live all the time. I can’t tell if they make my laundry dry faster or not, because I always let it run the full “delicate” cycle on low heat and I’ve never had a problem with that drying even jeans. Probably the dry climate, again.

    They do increase the noise of the dryer a bit as the balls tumble around, but it isn’t noticeable to me outside of the laundry room, so it isn’t a big deal. The only actual problem that I have with them is that my cats desperately want to play with them. They’re used to wool balls being toys, so they are not convinced that they shouldn’t play with these ones.

    I absolutely LOVE using the balls. I have noticed a slight odor but it goes away if you put essential oil on the dryer balls. Ultimately the benefits outweigh this one negative and I am so glad I switched!

    I’m a college student in my first apartment, and I can’t believe I waited so long to use these. I use an old machine in my building that usually takes two tries to dry, and this just made it so I don’t have to pay to dry my clothes twice. To give it a nice smell, like dryer sheets would, I add a couple drops of my favorite essential oils to the dryer balls and it leaves all my clothes smelling wonderful.

    Good product, weird smell

    Shelly Shapiro (verified owner)

    These dryer balls arrived with a strong, sweet, candy-like odor that is pretty offensive. Fortunately, they do not seem to transfer that odor to laundry, and after a few uses, the odor is finally going away. Other than that, they perform like other wool dryer balls I have tried in the past.

    They work really well. They seem really durable too which I was sort of worried about. They honestly work better than regular dryer sheets in my opinion. I’m not sure if they reduce static, but that’s really only a problem in the winter.

    I love using these things! I wish I had known about them years ago. Depending on load size and type of clothing, they reduce drying time anywhere from 25 to 50% and leave my clothes feeling soft. I haven’t really noticed a reduction in static cling though, which is unfortunate, but it’s only a problem for a handful of my garments. I’ve used these about 30 times and they still look like they did when I first got them. Supposedly I have ~970 more uses out of them. After that, they will be much welcomed in my compost bin.

    jacquelynbloxham (verified owner)

    I haven’t noticed on drying time cuts, but really that’s only because I use the dryer before bed and let them dry as I sleep. I can definitely attest to them softening the fabric, tho. I love these and I use them every time.

    Strong manure odor

    Eric Tetauer (verified owner)

    The product looks clean but has a very strong odor of manure. Tried hand washing them to no avail. Hoping that a few days out in the sunlight will remove the odor, but as is, will not use these for their intended purpose as we don’t want our clean laundry smelling like a farm.

    These are pretty cool!

    xkittnx13 (verified owner)

    I don’t do laundry very often and loathe doing it because I’m in an apartment building and yea…I don’t have to say much else. Anyway, these really do hold up to what they say about drying your clothes in less time. Dryers in my building go for 38 min a clip and I was able to dry a load of sheets with a heavy wool blanket using three balls and a dryer of t-shirts and undies using 3 balls. Both dryers on low. The t-shirts load was 95% dry. Typically, I’d do a 76 min dry on shirts and others loads and this mostly did it in half the time. My only real “complaint” is that I put 10 drops on essential oil on the balls immediately before drying and my clothes didn’t smell like lavender =/ womp womp. Whatever. I’m still happy to have gotten these. I stopped using dryer sheets years ago because I thought it a waste of money before I thought about the environmental impact. Now that I’m more eco-conscious, I’m glad I got these because they are not only helping cut energy use but they’re cutting back on static AND I’m not wasting any money. Big thumbs up. Highly recommend.

    I had two plastic dryer balls for a long time, and decided to give these a try….well! I absolutely love them. love the fact there are six of them. I use four at a time and they make my clothes dry in half the time saving in electricity and money. They come in a cute bag to put them away when not in use and comes with clear instructions. I will definitely will buy again when there get all used up. Very happy with this purchase!

    My towels used to take 2 hours to dry, but with all 6 balls in the dryer with them it only takes an hour. Cut my laundry time tremendously. I haven’t scented them yet, but I’m excited to. I’m trying to get my mom into it. They didn’t fuzz when I used them, so that was nice too!

    Just perfect

    meli_jack23 (verified owner)

    I toss just three balls in the dryer with my clothes and it did speed up the drying process. I use a hybrid method so I only put my clothes in the dryer for a few minutes and then hang it so it can finish drying but once I started using the dryer balls there’s only a few pieces of clothing that still need to be hanged to dry.
