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.

  • 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.

I followed directions. First load after washing the dryer balls no static. I used the dryer balls in the next five loads and my clothes had so much static I had to redry with a dryer sheet. I kept trying thinking maybe it was the type of clothes and trying to figure out if I had done something wrong. Nothing worked. I was so excited about these dryer balls because I know the damage dryer sheets can do to clothes. But, my excitement turned to disappointment. I had five people waiting for the results before they ordered. I video called them and showed them all the static. I have never experienced my clothes having all that static. They will not be ordering. So very disappointed.

Put my cheap ones to shame

Didn’t realize my old cheap ones needed to be replaced. These dryer balls are heavier and do a much better job of tumbling the clothes in the dryer. I added a few drops of lemongrass essential oil to the balls for a light fragrance.

Love these alpaca balls for drying my clothes. They work wonderfully. Going to buy more as a matter of fact. Very well made.

Lives up to it’s word!

These dryer balls have been wonderful so far! I followed the direction of using them with a load of towels first & had no issues with shedding. I will update if that changes but so far so good!
