Ethically-made and eco-friendly, they are a natural and sustainable alternative to your never-ending supply of toxic dryer sheets. Hand-made in a rural Peruvian village, these alpaca balls are felted one-by-one by a female cooperative of skilled artisans- in collaboration with their local alpaqueros.
Change your laundry forever with these reusable fabric softeners. Because the comfort of modern home essentials no longer comes at the price of Mother Nature’s wellbeing.
Features & Benefits:
Directions: place 3 balls in dryer with regular load. Keep balls in dryer between loads. Alternatively, store balls in box that comes with the pack of 3, or store balls in organic cotton bag that comes with the pack of 6.
The balls absorb moisture and create air circulation in the dryer. This wind effect in the dryer reduces dryer time. At the same time, the balls replace disposable dryer sheets and plastic dryer balls along with the harsh chemicals within them.
Materials, Size & Care:
The dryer balls are made from 50% Peruvian alpaca and 50% Peruvian wool.
The Muslin Eco Bag (that comes with the pack of 6 balls) is made with 100% GOTS-certified organic cotton. The care for the Muslin Eco Bag is cold water wash and hang to dry. Do not machine dry as that will cause the bag to shrink.
Each ball is approx. 3" (8cm) in diameter and 9.5" (24cm) in circumference
To keep the ball's maximum effect, periodically place each ball in a sock, wash on a hot cycle with detergent, remove ball from sock, dry ball on hot setting.
Any natural pilling can be removed; however, this is not necessary as the pills make balls more effective.
