Waste Not: See Ya Later Dryer Sheets

Our 100% premium New Zealand wool dryer balls reduce wrinkles, softens your clothes without leaving residue behind, and their XL size reduces drying time which saves energy. Oh, and they’ll also outlast the life of your dryer. Fluff yeah!

Reduces Wrinkles

Chemical-Free Softening

Lasts 10,000 Loads

Dryer Sheet Alternative

Good to know...
Safe for all fabric types. For garments that bleed (like dark denim), you can choose to match your ball to your wash load: gray for mixed colors, cream for whites, black for darks.

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.

A really good clean

We bring nature into our science lab to create our innovative products, and we use independent, 3rd party labs to test their effectiveness. Spoiler: they work.

Wool Does It Better

And we’ve got the balls to prove it.

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).

Ok product

It's ok, not too thrilled, as I have to watch what I use them with. They leave lint on some of the clothing items

Definitely works well

The dryer balls definitely work well. The towels came out soft and fluffy and there was no static on any of the clothes. One caveat, the first time I used them my German Shepherd went nuts trying to figure out who was knocking. Once I showed him it was the dryer we were good.

They’re ok

I’m a little disappointed I was hoping to reduce using dryer sheets but there’s a lot of static electricity when removing the clothes from the dryer. So I still have to use a sheet. Also, the ball makes a thumping noise in the dryer. Probably wouldn’t purchase again especially at the cost. Saw a similar product for cheaper in a different store.

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.
