100% Premium New Zealand Wool

Plastic-free • Rubber-free • Chemical-free
New Zealand sheep graze in outdoor pastures, and their annual summer shearing – performed skillfully and pain-free – helps them live comfortable and healthy lives.
New Zealand sheep farmers are required to meet the highest global standards regarding cruelty-free and environmental sustainability practices. Exporting sheep from New Zealand is prohibited, so the sheep stay happy in their pastures while their wool is shipped around the world.
Wool is a natural and sustainable material that does not damage fabric. It leaves no chemical residue or dyes behind like dryer sheets and tennis balls, and unlike PVC dryer balls, wool is able to absorb 30% of its weight in water which further reduces drying time.

Wool Does It Better

And we’ve got the balls to prove it.

Faster Drying

Our Balls Are Bigger

65% more drying area to retain and distribute heat, plus more wool to soak up excess moisture.

Faster Drying

Dryer balls bounce between layers of wet fabric for improved air circulation. Unlike plastic alternatives, wool absorbs up to 30% of its weight in water, pulling moisture from the laundry for an even faster dry.

Energy Saving

Faster dry-time means less power (and cost) to run your dryer.

Long Lasting

Unlike disposable single-use dryer sheets, our wool dryer balls are reusable for 10,000 loads.

How to Use

  • Add your wet laundry to the dryer
  • Toss in a dryer ball
  • Choose your dry cycle

Our dryer balls will take care of the rest. We promise. (That’s why we have a risk-free trial.)

For best results: do not over-dry (the dry time will be shorter). Add more than one ball for heavy items like towels or large-capacity dryers for an even faster dry (they dryer ball color won’t transfer).

wool dryer balls

I noticed my clothes are less wrinkled and less static. Shorter drying times too. Great purchase!

Great Balls of Dryer!

I like them. Bought these dryer balls to replace smaller plastic ones I had. I like that you only need one ball in a load and just use the color that matches your laundry load. The balls are quiet and work well. Glad I bought them.

Surprise !

In the past I've always used 3 balls at once. Not finding the best result with only one ball at a time.

Works for why I bought them

Still new to the dryer ball scene, so possibly it’s me but the balls end up with a lot of “fuzzies” right out the gate. I miss the dryer sheet scent but the server time is reduced and that was my main reason for purchase

Great!

I actually really like these! We don't do strong smells on our clothes (preference). These really cut down the time needed to dry clothes and make the clothes nice and soft.

Very Good

I am very happy with the reduction in drying time. Although there is still plenty of static electricity.

Thank you so much for following up on this product, I hope I can help you use these dryer balls as effectively as possible to reduce static! Typically, the reason static occurs is due to overdrying clothes during the dry cycle. The static can be caused by a lack of humidity in the dryer, often when the drying cycle is run for too long. Have you tried running a shorter dry cycle? The wool dryer balls do reduce the drying time, so it may not need to run for very long at all compared to the typical cycle!

FAQ about XL Wool Dryer Balls

Yes! They’re all natural, so no need to worry if your dog steals them from the dryer. Added bonus for pet parents: wool dryer balls may help capture pet hair off furry garments.
Absolutely not! We are very careful to source our wool from New Zealand, which is the country with the strictest laws regarding the health and welfare of the animals (and where the cruel practice of mulesing is prohibited). Australia and other countries do not have these laws, so it’s important to always choose New Zealand wool.
Our balls are extra-large, so we recommend using one per load. You can use more if you have a large capacity dryer or heavy items like towels. The dryer ball color won’t transfer onto your fabric, so color-coordination is not required.
Wool has a very high ignition temperature around 570-600° C (much higher than many synthetic materials), so our balls are safe to use in your dryer.
You’ll know it’s time to replace your dryer balls when the felt starts to loosen up, and they begin to unravel. Our dryer balls last over 10,000 loads, so they should outlive your dryer.
PVC and tennis balls contain synthetic materials that are stable at low temperatures, but can release harmful chemicals when they’re heated in the dryer. Tennis balls are treated with colorants, and can transfer dye to your garments.
No. The wool dryer balls do not shed, and are meant to be used on dark, light, and colored loads.
