Stop Using Fabric Sheets - They Are Harmful To Your Health. 

Our all-natural, hypoallergenic alpaca dryer balls are an excellent, environmentally friendly alternative to chemicals, fabric softeners, and dryer sheets for softening clothes and reducing static and wrinkles.

In order to see dryer time reduction, less static, and fewer wrinkles, we recommend a minimum of 3 Alpaca Wool Dryer Balls and suggest that you use 5 or more for full efficiency and benefits. These dryer balls don't merely absorb the moisture from your clothes; they also function as nuclei bouncing around the dryer, distributing the heat, and opening up your garments so they last long longer without heat damage.

Balls are sold individually and are $8.00 each.

Available in white and gray at this time
  • Hypoallergenic: Specialty dye-free, chemical-free fiber to keep skin happy. Recent studies show dryer sheets are full of chemicals and can be harmful and detrimental to health.  Dryer sheets are not needed with dryer balls, so no more chemicals on your skin and clothes. Perfect for babies & sensitive skin.
  • Fabric: 100% Alpaca. No Fillers.

  • Color: White, Gray

  • Directions: Put in washing machine on hot water cycle with light colored clothes or by themselves.  Then put in dryer with light colored clothes. This will set the felted alpaca laundry ball to eliminate shedding.  Continue to keep in dryer with every load of laundry. 

  • Softens clothes: Reduces static, eliminates wrinkles.

  • Environmentally friendly: No more chemicals on your skin from dryer sheets. No dyes added—all natural Alpaca colors. Unlike dryer sheets that continually need to be thrown away after every use, our alpaca dryer balls help you save money and reduce waste. They last years and years. Go green and save at the same time.

  • Built to Last: Reusable hundreds and hundreds of times. Designed for durability and endurance, lasting virtually a lifetime.

  • Essential Oils: Use as an added benefit. Enjoy your favorite aromas as well as the luxury of soft, wrinkle-free, dry laundry!

  • How they work: Click Here for Additional Information

Instead of the wet clothes remaining in a clump / ball and drying from the outside in, the dryer balls bounce around inside the dryer drum, separating the various items and creating loft between the clothes for better air flow and quicker drying.  This decreases your costs in electricity (or gas) by reducing the time needed to run the machine by up to 35% depending on your machine. 

 Do not settle for inferior versions of dryer balls. These are often:

  • Smaller: Not as efficient as our larger size balls. Smaller balls cannot store heat the same way our larger size balls do. The larger size allows built-up heat to be distributed continuously throughout the drying cycle.

  • Plastic: Chemicals against your skin.

  • Sheep Wool: Itchy, scratchy, and not as absorbent.

  • Contain fillers: Our balls are all pure alpaca. Alpaca is more breathable and absorbent, shortening drying time.

As these are handmade, colors and sizes may vary.  Shape may also vary - including oblong and oval. Shape has no impact on the function of the drying your laundry.

*The dryer balls vary in size but they are approximately 3 ounces in weight, about 9 inches in circumference and 3 1/2 inches in diameter.

* Instruction card is included with each order.

Ordered a month ago and wrote email to this company to inquire where my package is. They have not responded or reached out at all. I thoroughly regret purchasing from this company, I advise you to use a more trusted company.

The dryer balls are very small compared to those I bought a few years ago from Alpacas of Montana. The larger balls were excellent and lasted a long time. These are smaller and cost more.

The gray dryer balls in our last set did condense more than the white colored dryer balls. However, the same amount of fleece - 3 oz. - Is used in each ball, so the weight is the same. True, our dryer balls are more expensive, as ours are made with 100% alpaca fleece (no fillers or ping pong ball) and we pay our employees strong living wages. Thus, the costs are more expensive.

I followed instructions on how to use dryer balls for the first time. Still, found hair on dark colored clothes for a few times. But overall is lessening now. Was worth the purchase.

Higher quality than anything else out there!

Super fast/easy ordering and delivery....But, I am not convinced that the alpaca balls cut down drying time. For sure they do not prevent static, as all my nylon/rayon clothes came out totally sealed together with static electricity. I am surprised that I didn't electrocute myself pulling them apart. I used lavender essential oil, and it makes the clothes smell good..that was a plus.
