Dryer Ball Trio
A trio of hand-felted dryer balls made with fleece from our rescue alpacas. Each ball weighs between 1.2 and 2.25 ounces; the trio will weigh approximately 6 oz total. These balls replace dryer sheets for those who want to dry their clothes without artificial fragrance or chemicals.
These are handmade items, and no two are alike.
How to use: throw all three dryer balls in your dryer with a load of laundry to dry. Set your dryer to "auto", and let it roll! These all-natural dryer balls help reduce static *unless you over-dry your clothes*. Some people report that they reduce drying time, but we aren't sure how accurate that is--we do know that we haven't had static issues since we started using these.
Maintenance: If your dryer balls start to loosen up after a year, toss them in a load of hot wash with some rags. Then toss them back in the dryer.
Disposal/product life cycle: Ours have lasted over four years. When you're ready to throw them out, they can be composted or used as dog toys. Some of our rescue colleagues report that huskies love to shred them. ;)
