I’ve used buffalo gal alpaca dryer balls for 12 years now. Don’t even bother with any other kind of brand because they’re not worth it.
DRYER BALLS - Alpaca Felt - Set of 4 (Small to Medium Loads) - SOLD OUTAdd to Wishlist
Our felted dryer balls are a simple way to lower your toxic load. By switching your synthetic-laden dryer sheets for all-natural Alpaca Felt Dryer Balls, you’ll save money as well! Felt dryer balls can last for 800+ loads and/or many years, and are biodegradable.
Our Dryer Balls are handcrafted on-farm from the fleece of our own sustainably raised alpacas. They come in a variety of funky colors and asymmetrical shapes and sizes, depending on the fleece's staple length and fineness. Alpaca fleece is free of lanolin so it is a hypoallergenic alternative to sheep's wool. No dyes are ever added -- only natural colors!
So, how do they work? Dryer balls help separate garments for wrinkle reduction, increased softness, and slightly decreased drying time. Every order also includes a small sachet filled with coarse sea salt, which we find eliminates a good deal of static when added to dryer loads.
We recommend a set of 4 for small to medium loads and a set of 6 for large and extra large loads. We do a lot of laundry on our farm (large loads!) and do fine with a set of 4. Using a set of 6 is best for slightly decreasing dry time. When they're noticeably smaller in size and no longer seem to be reducing wrinkles it's time to give them to your pet as a chew toy or place them in your garden for mulch.
For a fresh scent, try adding a few drops of a pleasing essential oil.
These are the best way to get the chemicals, static and wrinkles out of your laundry. I’ve been using them for years and now I have purchased a few sets for giving as Christmas presents! (I’m thoughtful like that)
