Toss these pure wool dryer balls in with a load of wet laundry and clothes will come out super-soft and with less static—and in less time—than usual. Made in Nepal with wool from New Zealand, the balls can last for hundreds of loads.
When the laundry comes tumbling out of the dryer, we want it to feel soft and smell good. If you’ve been using the same synthetic dryer sheets for years, it’s time for a change. There’s a new kid on the block, and it’s a lamb of a product.
Meet Woolzies. These are dryer balls with a difference. Composed of soft yet supple New Zealand wool, Woolzies will eliminate static cling, reduce dryer time (which saves energy), and make your clothes and linens super soft. Woolzies won’t melt or disintegrate, and they last for load upon load of laundry. These dryer balls are all natural and have no artificial smell or residue. They also beat out wrinkles so you don’t have to iron.
Woolzies come to us from Soft By Nature, a family-owned company run by eco-advocate Eli Feuer in New York’s Hudson Valley region. The New Zealand wool is turned into balls in Nepal, where the work is an important source of income for many women, so you can feel good about your purchase. We would never pull the wool(zies) over your eyes.
