No Need for Fabric Softner, Use Wool Dryer Balls

What are Wool Dryer Balls?

A wool dryer ball is a felted ball of wool, about the size of a tennis ball, that you use in your dryer to help you separate your clothes.  When using several, it creates a constant motion that allows the air to circulate around your wet laundry enabling your clothes to dry faster.

What are the Benefits?

  • No need for fabric softener-Wool Dryer Balls are the natural solution for softening your clothes without chemicals. Made completely from wool, they help your clothes (and cloth diapers!) tumble dry softly, and reduce the drying time by up to half.
  • They reduce your drying time-which saves the wear on your clothes and money.

What Makes The Willow Store Dryer Balls Different?

  • Made from natural felted wool-They are made with all natural fibers!
  • They are handmade right here in the US.
  • They come in many varieties-natural or bright vibrant colors that won’t bleed.

Our Experience

As I have shared before, my kids enjoy helping me open each package that comes into our home.  This package was no exception!  Funny that they were so excited to open a box of dryer balls, but they were most excited about the colors!  We were surprised that we had bright, vibrant colors and they couldn’t have been happier.

Both Austin and Addie love to help me with the laundry. Austin was so anxious to try them, that he just couldn’t wait to get the laundry going.  I was in the middle of making dinner and told him I needed to snap photos before we could use them.  So he took it upon himself, my four-year old, to take the photos so we could use our new dryer balls!

After he snapped a photo of them on the table (was a little fuzzy), he then proceeded to place them in the dryer and take about 10 shots of them, so I could choose which one was the best.  It is amazing on how much they are observant.

After using them now for over a month, I have to say I LOVE them!  Do they help reduce drying time, YES!  Have I had any static?  No!  We will continue to use dryer balls in each and every load?  Absolutely!
