Wool Dryer Balls from Fondle My Fiber - Review


Feba from Fondle My Fiber sent me 2 awesome dryer balls to review and also 2 to giveaway!!!  One of the ones I received looks like a dog and the other has a little decoration on it.  Thank you so much Feba for the wonderful review and giveaway :)

These dryer balls are not the spun kind.  They are totally felted all the way through.  These dryer balls are awesome in helping to reduce drying time.  I now have 4 dryer balls (2 are from Feba) and I notice that my clothes are done about 30 minutes sooner than before and my diapers are done about 15-20 minutes sooner.  Dryer balls a a great natural way to help reduce drying time and to also soften your clothes.  With 2 little kids I hate putting more on their clothes than there needs to be.  I have never used dryer sheets with them.  But the dryer balls are awesome in helping to keep their clothes soft!

If you are all about natural stuff and/or CD you NEED to try some dryer balls.  They are an awesome accessory to add to your household and you will not be sorry you did :)  

About the Dryer Balls from Feba

Want a safe environmentally friendly alternative to dryer sheets?

Handmade Wool dryer balls Set of 2. I have increased the size to 2-3 oz each
An environmentally friendly and pocket book friendly option to dryer sheets!!

They are an excellent alternative to dryer sheets, fabric softener, and plastic PVC balls.

Wool absorbs up to 30% of its weight in water so these dryer balls soften clothes, reduce drying time, save money, reduce static, reduce wrinkles, and are reusable for years.

GREAT for cloth diapers

Using 4 dryer balls on a 90 minute cycle will cut a small load of laundry approximately in 1/2 and a large load by 1/4! The more you use the better they work. They can be used on cloth diapers and all other laundry.

Piling may occur. They can be shaved if bothersome but it does not affect the performance of the dryer ball. If anything it may help them work better by providing more surface area and friction. They may also shrink slightly in size as the wool continues to felt.

There is no need to remove them in between loads and no need to wash.
I recommend starting with 4 dryer balls and adding more later. The more you add, the shorter your drying time
To further reduce static, add vinegar during your rinse cycle in your washing machine.

Each ball is hand decorated and unique.
