Alpaca Wool Dryer Balls Review: Go GREEN and save money was the promise when purchasing a set of 100% Alpaca Wool Dryer Balls. After a month of using them for all of our laundry I am definitely sold.
Alpaca dryer balls are felted alpaca yarn designed to bounce around the dryer with the laundry to shorten drying times and reduce wrinkles without exposing your clothes to any of the chemicals in dryer sheets or plastic dryer balls. You can re-use the alpaca dryer balls for years. The best results come when using 3 dryer balls.
As they tumble around the dryer the alpaca balls fluff the laundry and gently pummel it to make it softer. They can also reduce drying time by about 25% by absorbing moisture, which can result in saving money on utility bills.
The alpaca balls help reduce static, but be careful not to over dry the clothes, which can result in the dreaded static cling. I have only noticed minor static in a load of towels which I had accidentally set on the extra dry setting. Speaking of loads of towels, the alpaca dryer balls won’t affect the absorbency of the towels like dryer sheets do.
The first use is best with a load of wet towels. The balls may initially become a little fuzzy. If this happens, carefully trim off the fuzzy hair with a pair of scissors, and you’re good to go. The dryer balls may shrink slightly with continued use, which is normal.
Do you really like the scent of dryer sheets? Use essential oils to scent your dryer balls. If you do use essential oils send the dryer balls through alone on a short cycle to dry the oil, otherwise you may get oil spots on your clothing.
Do you have a money saving tip or product we should try? Comment below we would love to hear from you.
We purchased our Alpaca Balls at Specialty Meat & Gourmet in Hudson, WI. Thanks Linda and Steve for the recommendation I will be in to get some for Christmas gifts.
