Have a Ball.

Woolzies are pure handmade New Zealand wool dryer balls that soften your laundry naturally. Tumbling a few of these hand-spun all-natural dryer balls along with your laundry reduces drying time, wrinkles and static. And because they contain hand-spun wool exclusively, you won't risk putting the harsh chemicals in conventional fabric softeners or risky plastics embedded in other dryer balls in your cycle.

Woolzies are also hypoallergenic and safe for people with wool sensitivities, as they will not shed onto your laundry. Unlike dryer sheets and liquid fabric softeners, Woolzies last for hundreds and hundreds of loads and so they're friendly to the environment and your shopping bill! Sheep raised humanely. Handmade of the highest quality New Zealand wool by women in Katmandu, Nepal. Washed with natural soap and water five times before they're felted and made into balls.

      This product delivers! The clothes dry faster. My sheets and large items no longer are tangled when drying. The clothes appear to be softer once dried. It's made me love doing laundry again! I'll buy this product for every baby/wedding shower I am invited to in the future. Can't say enough positive comments about this product. AWESOME!

            Love this product. Tumbles the clothes nicely in the dryer. I have seen a reduction in drying time. The only thing is that it does nothing for static cling. However, I read somewhere to add a crumpled up ball of aluminum foil about the size of the Woolzies and toss it in with the clothes. This has greatly reduced the static cling.

                    I have been using these for several months...they eliminate all dryer static. I only use 3 balls at a time (directions suggest all 6) & it works wonderfully.

                        I got this is a stocking stuffer for my mom but it was bigger than I thought (they are tennis ball sized) so I wrapped it as a present instead. She texted me yesterday to tell me they tried them out and loved the results. A good value when you consider all you could save on dryer sheets/softener products.

                            I LOVE THESE DRYER BALLS!! My sheets fit more smoothly on the bed and there is a definite softness that I would not have believed possible. It helps some with anti-static and considerably with reducing/eliminating wrinkles. There is a small appearance of shrinking some items of clothing and they stretch out again. Think soft, plush, luxury sheets! You'll be glad you got them...no chemicals.

                            There's nothing quite like super-soft clean laundry, and these wool balls help keep your favorite garments and linens wrinkle and static-free. They also reduce drying time! Would you throw a few in your next load?

                            I would loves these. Trying to be more natural and these would help. Maybe a bit expensive, but I would consider buying them.

                            These would be nice if they worked. Not sure if I would pay $35 for something I didn't know worked so I'd wait for other people to try it first and wait on the reviews.

                            Great idea if they work. I'd also like to know about the noise factor. Remember putting tennis shoes in the dryer?

                            Do you use one at a time or all at once. If one at a time, I could see paying $35 for them. However, if you use them all at once, that's kind of expensive.

                            On the pricey side, but if they do the job with the longevity stated, I like the environmental impact.

                            Only voting up if they work. Those plastic/rubber ones don't work at all, but maybe wool does

                            I think this is cool and would be a great try but the price will probably keep me away.

                            I like the idea of these, and eliminating my dryer sheets. But would more likely pay if under $30.

                            I questions why 6 in the package if they are supposed to last for "hundreds and hundreds" of loads of laundry as the product story says. Lower the amount lower the price and I am in.

                            These are perfect for anyone with allergies!

                            Thanks for asking, Lindsay! You'll want to put several Woolzies in each load (the number varies depending on the size of your load, but more specific details are included on the item packaging) so they can move throughout your laundry "kneading" the fabrics for maximum effect.

                            Very clever. Great way to be chemical free. Very helpful in reducing electric usage. But, way too expensive for me to ever purchase.

                            I would try these. I tried the rubber balls, so why not?If they don't work my granddaughters will love them!

                            I love these and they're all natural! The price really isn't that expensive if you consider what they are made out of. How many times can they be used?

                            Thanks for the question, ciara! these wool wonders can be used for over 500 loads, that's more than a year's worth of laundry!
