Woolies dryer balls are hand-made from 100% Canadian wool and are non-toxic and chemical-free. They will save you money, energy, and time on your laundry. Woolies come in eco-friendly biodegradable/compostable packaging and all products come with a 1-year warranty.
What are wool dryer balls and what do they do?
- Using wool dryer balls can cut down the drying time depending on the number of balls you use. 4 balls = about 25% and 6 balls = about 45%. The wool pulls moisture out of your clothes and the balls bounce around, separating your clothes and creating better airflow for faster drying.
- Wool dryer balls naturally soften your laundry by circulating the laundry so there isn’t a need for chemical fabric softeners
That makes wool dryer balls perfect for drying cloth diapers! Since softeners aren’t recommended, dryer balls are a great alternative to softening your diapers. If you dry your covers in the dryer the dryer balls will help dry them faster, reducing wear and tear from the dryer.
I have three different brands of dryer balls (for a total of 11) and the Woolies are by far my favorite! Here are my Woolies along with two other brands:
Per Woolies website, they are felted at least four times so the fibers will not come off on your clothing. To be fair, the other balls have been used for about a year now so it’s natural that they would look a bit ratty in comparison, but the Woolies have been used for over a month and they still look almost new! There is very minor pilling and what pilling there is isn’t from the dryer ball itself. The pills from clothes that attached themselves to the balls where the pills on the other two are from the dryer balls themselves.
As you can see, they are much larger than the others and they are extremely well made. Woolies dryer balls are about the size of a large orange and seem to circulate laundry very well due to their large size. Four Woolies dries my laundry just as well as seven of the other, smaller dryer balls. The only thing that I don’t like about using dryer balls is having to fish them out of sleeves and pant legs but another great thing about their size is that since they are so large it makes it harder for Woolies to “hide” in your clothes.
I love my Woolies and when it comes time to replace my old dryer balls, I will be replacing them with Woolies!
