Product Description

Smart Sheep wool dryer balls shorten drying time, soften and fluff fabric, and reduce static. They help bed sheets stay untangled during the drying process as well as keep pet hair off of clothes.

They are all-natural, with no synthetic fibers or chemicals used. While some other brands use center fillers or low-quality wool, Smart Sheep dryer balls are always made of 100% premium New Zealand wool. They will not unravel and will last for years. Their size is optimal for maximum dryer efficiency. They may develop some pilling, but pilling makes for softer laundry because a larger surface area improves softness and drying time. Wool dryer balls are quieter and more gentle on clothing than plastic dryer balls with nubs. They are great for fluffing down feather items such as quilts and jackets. Using wool dryer balls saves your dryer from the residue left from liquid fabric softeners and dryer sheets. Our wool dryer balls are the perfect gift for all occasions: baby showers, Mother's Day, Father's Day, bridal showers, weddings, Christmas, college graduation, housewarming, teacher appreciation, and more! They also make a fabulous stocking stuffer. The Smart Sheep family works hard to bring you the best wool dryer balls at the best price. Get rid of chemical-laden products and try Smart Sheep.

TIPS:
- Try scenting the dryer balls by placing a few drops of essential oil (lavender, lemon, etc) on each ball. This will lightly scent your clothes!
- Keep dryer balls away from pets. They will think they are fun toys and will run off with them. However, if you are fine letting your dog play with them and getting them dirty, our dryer balls also make safe and excellent fetch toys! They are great for both indoor and outdoor play as an alternative use.
- Reduce static further by making sure clothing is not over-dried. Try taking clothes out sooner than you usually do.

This is my first set of wool dryer balls; they replaced a set of cracking plastic balls that were shedding their nubbins. I've been using these for nearly two months now and I'm very pleased with them.

I read an embarrassingly high number of reviews for various wool dryer balls before ordering these. Several brands seemed similar in quality, so eventually it came down to price and these were the winner. No regrets or disappointments! This set is an excellent value, especially compared to the competition.

I never use dryer sheets, so I can't compare the wool balls to those. However, versus plastic dryer balls, they triumph in every category that matters to me:
- Reduced drying time/increased fluffing. The wool balls are larger (in terms of solid surface area) and denser than any plastic ball I've used, which seemingly causes them to be more efficiently distributed while tumbling, resulting in loads that dry faster and more evenly.
- Quieter (in terms of hitting the drum). No more loud banging!
- Gentler on fabrics (no nubbins).
- Reduced static cling. Static is now eliminated for nearly all of my loads, which happened far less often with the plastic balls.
- Handmade out of natural material. Since they are 100% wool, you aren't left wondering about any nasty chemicals.

Before ordering, I worried about whether they'd shed and cause lint on darks, but that has not been the case. They don't seem shed--if they do, the fibers must end up in the lint trap because they thankfully are not on my clothes.

Out of the package, they smelled a bit odd (hard to describe--sort of a concentrated wool scent), but that dissipated quickly and did not transfer to the laundry. I no longer notice a smell (which disappeared without the use of essential oils as I have not yet tried adding any to the balls).

They seem very durable and I anticipate them cycling through many more loads. Happy drying!

I had serious doubts about the effectiveness of wool dryer balls but I now love them. I dried my polar fleece sheets today and they came out static-free, odor-free, and the fluffiest they have ever been. (Polar fleece sheets are like thin fleece blankets or flannel sheets on steroids.) I discovered a wealth of information about static control on the Internet so I used 1/2 cup of vinegar in the fabric softener dispenser of the washer and then 2 safety pins clipped to the sheet in the dryer. I've since learned to use 4 safety pins on a piece of fabric and leave it in the dryer with the balls so I don't have to put pins into something for every dryer load. The metal of the pins discharges the electricity. The vinegar helps to fluff and reduce static.

Another tip I just read about to reduce static is to sprinkle 1/4 to 1/2 cup of baking soda over the clothes in the washer prior to starting the washer. Baking soda effectively creates a barrier around each garment, preventing negative and positive charges from building up and causing the garments to stick together or to themselves. Another tip is to throw a damp washcloth into the dryer - switch the dryer to the lowest heat setting for the last 10 minutes and throw a clean, mildly damp washcloth or towel into the machine for the remainder of the cycle. Electrical charges are more likely to build up when the air becomes excessively dry. Adding a damp washcloth to the end of the drying cycle prevents the air inside the machine from becoming too dry. Another tip - don't overdry!

The odd thing is the polar fleece sheets came out feeling the softest they've ever been (thank you dryer balls and vinegar!). When I folded them, I could hear the static sparks but the material didn't cling or act staticy.

I bought these hoping they would reduce dryer time and they do. I usually run our sheets through the dryer on 2 full cycles, now I only need to run it through about half of the 2nd cycle. The biggest difference I notice is in reducing wrinkles and making the laundry softer. My husband was skeptical but he noticed a difference as well. I would definitely recommend these for a natural way to soften laundry and prevent wrinkles. As long as you are realistic in realizing that this may reduce your dryer time by 20-30%, then you will not be disappointed.

Joy! :-) The 6-pack of wool dryer balls came in. They are each about the nice size of a soft ball. I made the BIG mistake of not smelling them first and used them for several wash loads before noticing all of our clothing smelled like urine. ):-(

I then smelled the dryer balls … YUK!!! All I can figure is that it was sheep sheared rear-end wool. Well, I sprayed the dryer balls with dilute essential oils and redid the laundry. The smell of urine was faintly there in the newly washed and dried clothing. So, then I put a few drops of undiluted lavender and white fir essential oils on each of the dryer balls for the next load of laundry to be dried. Behold, the clothing came out with barely a trace of the urine odor, but there were spots of essential oils all over the clothing. Oh joy, I had to treat that load of laundry for oil stains.

Then, back to the washing machine I went with a load of white towels (hot water+detergent+chlorine bleach) AND tossed the dryer balls in the washing machine with the towels. Well the dryer balls came out smelling like a clean, wet dog. What can I expect? It's sheep wool. I dried the 6 dryer balls alone with two fragranced dryer sheets in order to kill the odor. What a fiasco for the day! Ah-h-h, finally though, SOMEthing worked.

After all that rigmarole, I really like the wool dryer balls. The plastic dryer balls are obnoxiously loud (BANG! BU-DA-BANG!) interfering with our household activities; these wool dryer balls are not that noticeable (poof-pa-da--poof). Also they don't bounce out of the dryer nearly as much as the plastic balls did. For the stinky start, I will give a 2 star rating. For the correction and daily usage now after the intensive cleaning to alleviate the bad sheep urine smell, I give them a 5 star. So … 4 star it is! Hope this helps some of you wonderful folks out there in laundry land.
