What's all the hype about dryer balls? You see them more and more but do you really know the best way to use them? When we were closed last spring, I spent a LOT of time sourcing new products. I was particularly taken with Friendsheep Wool, not only because of the rave reviews, but after reading about how the company came to be and seeing the video of how much time goes in to producing these functional pieces of art, I had to have faith and place a small order. When they arrived and I held them in my hands and felt the quality, I was so happy I took a chance. We've now re-ordered them repeatedly and they have proven to make the mundane chore of laundry LOADS of fun!
Friendsheep Eco Dryer Balls naturally soften and fluff your laundry by gently tumbling in your dryer. Their movement helps separate your fabrics allowing the heat to better flow between them. That means your clothes dry faster - and you can shut the dryer off sooner. This will reduce wrinkles, static cling, and will help you sensibly reduce drying time.
These wool dryer balls are an all-natural fabric softener individually hand made for fair wages in Nepal from 100% premium organic New Zealand wool. They are reusable for 1000+ times, completely biodegradable, chemical free, scent free, hypoallergenic, and baby safe. They replace single-use chemically treated plastic dryer sheets and fabric softeners that contain harmful chemicals, and reduce drying time by 40%

Friendsheep was created by Valeria Isaacs, a zero waste entrepreneur, disability advocate, mother, wife, nature lover, and former biologist. Always passionate about ecology and sustainable living, her pursuit of those passions was interrupted when a spinal cord injury left her quadriplegic at age 22. During her long and still ongoing recovery, Valeria has obtained a master’s degree in molecular biology, worked in contemporary art, and enjoyed living life at its fullest.
In late 2015, she decided to give new meaning to her life by founding Friendsheep, with the aim of providing high quality, eco-friendly products that respect animals and the environment while also providing work and purpose to women and people with disabilities in underprivileged communities of Nepal.
Curious about how they are made? You will be amazed at how much work goes into each and every one. Check out this "Making of" video!
Dryer balls won’t damage your dryer in any way, or make loud sounds when they’re in use.
TIP: Apply essential oils on the dryer balls, and you’ll have a lovely, soft scent diffuser – inside and outside the dryer! Lemon or lavender can be lovely for this. Just apply a few drops and let sit for a couple of hours. When in use, the subtle fragrance will get passed on to the clothes.
I can’t say enough about how much I LOVE using wool dryer balls, especially as an alternative to traditional dryer sheets. They are reusable, cost- and energy-effective, and, best of all, a healthy, non-toxic method of drying household laundry. Even if you're not a fan of doing laundry 😉 you will definitely be a fan of this new favorite find!
