Alpaca Dryer Balls

Natural White

The natural, earth-friendly way to do laundry.

Balls are sold in packs of three. We recommend a minimum of 3, and suggest 6 for maximum results.

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 not sold individually. 

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.

Purchased 2x3 sets and use all at same time for one dryer load. I don't think they are too noisy just a mild thumping. Previously used plastic dryer balls, which I just threw away, because those were very loud. I'm satisfied, and especially because entirely produced in USA.

Have to do the break in

The balls really helped drying speed and I have noticed a reduction in some static and wrinkles. But you have to do the break in the hot water wash and then dry them with some other things a couple times, they do smell a little funky after the first wash and there is a little bit of lint on some black socks the first couple of times I dried them but now they're great no fuzz the funky smell is gone.

Works great

They keep the static cling down and clothes soft. The only drawback is you can hear them in the dryer every once in awhile

Worth the purchase

Laundry, especially towels, has a softer feel. Wrinkles are essentially eliminated. Load dries quicker without over drying. The one small downside is the dryer running with the balls is a bit louder than I expected. Not excessive, but if you have a laundry area adjacent to your living area (e.g., not in a basement) I wouldn't run the dryer with balls very late at night or early morning.

They work great

My dryer doesn't dry towels well unless I put these in the dryer with them. I love them
