I have been using wool dryer balls for years here at 1840 Farm. With allergies and sensitive skin playing a role in our family life, I try to limit the amount of perfumes, dyes, and additives in our home from our cleaning products to the laundry room. I find that using these 100% wool dryer balls allows me to naturally achieve the results of traditional fabric softener and dryer sheets without any chemicals. Our skin is happier and so am I.
I love these beautiful and effective wool dryer balls so much that I wanted to share them with you through our 1840 Farm Mercantile Shop. They’re available in a range of colors both as a set of three dryer balls. Now you can join me in using these natural dryer balls in your laundry room and say goodbye to buying dryer sheets and fabric softener forever!
Each of these dryer balls is handmade right here at 1840 Farm. We work with 100% pure wool fiber, creating a ball by hand from the inside out. Once we have created a wool ball, we triple felt the fiber until it is firm. We use no chemicals to do this, choosing to use organic peppermint castile soap instead. The soap helps to improve the fiber’s ability to felt and join tightly together. It also lends a natural, fresh, light scent to the wool.
Wool dryer balls are safe for use with any type of laundry. They completely replace traditional dryer sheets and fabric softener. They can be scented with natural essential oils if you like or used as is at any temperature setting in your dryer. Simply add the wool dryer balls to your dryer with your damp laundry and dry as usual.
These handmade dryer balls can be used for years, serving you well for thousands of laundry loads. Because they are made of 100% wool, they will not degrade with use. Instead, the natural fibers will continue to felt and the balls will become more dense and compact over time. They’ll keep right on working to help separate your damp laundry for many years to come.
