Q: How do I use them?

A: Super easy! Just toss them in the dryer with your laundry, and always use a moisture-sensitive setting on your dryer. You can also stop the dryer 5-10 minutes before the end of its normal cycle. Do not over dry. Remember that over drying will produce static cling.

Q: Do I need to “recharge” my eco dryer balls? I love my eco dryer balls! I’ve been using them non stop for a year and now I’m starting to have some static in my loads, what should I do?

A: Sometimes after lots of runs in the dryer the heat over dries your wool dryer balls, they become extremely dry and incapable of absorbing humidity like before. An easy way of restoring them is to “recharge” your dryer balls by washing them in hot water on a gentle cycle and then dry on high heat. This will regenerate the wool and give the dryer balls a fresh recharge.

Q: Why should I choose Friendsheep Eco Dryer Balls over other dryer balls?

A: Friendsheep Eco Dryer Balls are the best fabric softener you can find. They are the healthy and organic choice, always made of 100% premium organic New Zealand wool to the core, with no low-quality center fillers as many others.
They are traditionally hand made for fair wages in Nepal using water and natural soap, and are not made by mass production in China like most other brands. The designs are needle felted with love by our savvy artisans and the balls are then sun dried. No chemicals or tricks to speed up production, ever.
Our artisans are amazing people from underprivileged communities living in the Himalayan Valley of Kathmandu. We believe that the best product should not only be made with the best materials, but also made with love, in the best ethical and environmental conditions by passionate people like our artisans.

Q: Do I need to wash my Eco Dryer Balls before their first use?

A: Nope, you don’t! Friendsheep Eco Dryer Balls are hand felted with hot water and vegetable soap using only clean pre-washed and pre-carded organic wool. They don’t need to be pre-washed and are completely safe to use. If you prefer to wash your dryer balls, or you will need to wash them in the future, we suggest washing them by hand with a mild soap in lukewarm water. Do not machine wash them – unless really necessary – because hot water for a prolonged time tends to loosen the wool fibers and damage the wool felt, eventually reducing your dryer balls lifetime.

Q: Will they lint on dark clothes?

A: No, absolutely not! Friendsheep Eco Dryer Balls DO NOT LINT! They are meant to be used on dark, light, and colored loads. We’ve been using them on every load for years and never had any issue. To be extra careful, on their very first use we suggest to use them on a light load in the rare case there were some loose fibers on their surface. From then on no risk of lint at all!

Q: Can I add fragrance to wool dryer balls?

A: Yes, definitely! You can add fragrance and essential oils to your Friendsheep Eco Dryer Balls. For a fresh scented laundry just add a few drops (3-5) of your favorite essential oil to each ball before each cycle. Allow absorption for a few minutes, then toss them in the dryer with your laundry. For maximum scent effect add the essential oil towards the end of your cycle, 10 minutes before the end, on a low heat setting.

Q: Do they help remove pet hair?

A: Yes, they definitely help remove pet hair! Friendsheep Eco Dryer Balls do their magic by gently separating your laundry in the dryer, therefore allowing larger flows of air to circulate, and increasing the efficiency of your dryer. The result is a soft and fluffy laundry, with less wrinkles and tangling, reduced static cling, and no pet hair.
They are magic! But you’ll still have to remove pet hair from your lint screen… 😉
