The fine wool from Shetland sheep produces a soft but firm dryer ball for your drying needs. Our dryer balls are hand-made completely out of 100% natural sheep wool in a process that involves balling up roving and yarn. The dryer balls are at least the size of a baseball, weigh between 1.6 and 1.8 oz and come in packs of 4.
The dryer balls have been pre-washed and dried to insure they have been properly felted. They work to reduce your drying time up to 25 – 40%. These eco-friendly dryer balls from our Shetland sheep raised on MacCurdy Farm can be used in place of single use dryer sheets for multiple dryer cycles. 2 – 3 drops of essential oil (mint, lavender, clove, etc.) can be added to the dryer balls to leave a lovely scent on the dried clothing.
A caveat for pet owners, unless you are purchasing these dryer balls as pet toys, be forewarned that pets will ruin the shape and efficiency of the dryer balls.
Each purchase helps support our local small family farm!
