Smart Sheep Premium Wool Dryer Balls: Great in So Many Ways!

Disclosure: I received a sample product to help facilitate the review. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.



Like so many of us today, I like switch over and use natural items when I can, for every day things I have previously done using something that had chemicals. For each and every switch I make, I do feel really good. Yes, the things may be small, but if a lot of people did a lot of small little things, it could definitely add up to huge change.

Even the packaging on this for delivery was minimal, which I love!

I have used dryer balls before and have always been happy with them. My mother-in-law uses them too, and she swears by them. Just a tad bit bigger than a standard-size tennis ball, these are easy to throw in the dryer with your clothes, they have the potential to save you a ton of money over the long-run, and they don't add scent to your clothes, which for some of you I know (scent) is an issue.

Smart Sheep Premium Wool Dryer Balls are available for sale
in packages of 3 or 6. Free Shipping in the U.S.

Smart Sheep wool dryer balls shorten drying time, soften and fluff fabric, and reduce static, and they do it without chemicals. They also help bed sheets stay untangled during the drying process, so wrinkling remains at a minimum. They are all-natural, with no synthetic fibers or as just mentioned, chemicals used. They are designed so they won't unravel, meaning they will last for years to come. That being said, some pilling may occur, and that is okay. The pilling makes for softer laundry because a larger surface area improves fluffiness and drying time.

Made of 100% New Zealand wool and hand-felted in Nepal, these dryer balls are a smart choice for every day laundry needs.

You can learn more about Smart Sheep Dryer Balls by visiting their website. You can also follow them on Facebook. You can purchase them on their Amazon page found here.

Have you used these in lieu of dryer sheets? Would you make the switch?

I love wool balls for laundry. They sometimes get caught in things. But they make my clothes so soft. The clothing dries quicker to.

Frugal and Fun Mom said...

I have never heard of these before, so thank you for the information. I like the idea if having an unscented alternative for drying laundry.

Lois Alter Mark said...

Oh, I so want to try these! What a great idea - and such a cute logo!

Katherine Bartlett said...

I used to swear by these. I loved them so much and never wanted to dry without them!

Haaa...
Okay, now that is out of the way.
We had dryer balls once (got lost in the move) I would always forget to use them..oops
If I do end up cloth diapering, this would be great to have on hand.
Have a great day!!!

I love dryer balls. I add a few drops of essential oil for a little scent.

Jillian Fisher said...

I had the same problem. I need to order some more and hide them better.

mail4rosey said...

Must be a kid thing, I had the same thing going on here yesterday. Happy to report mine are safely back in the laundry room today. ;)

mail4rosey said...

That's a good idea!! I might give that a try, I'm overdue to try the essential oils too.

Joanne T Ferguson said...

WOW I have never heard of these and have lived in New Zealand too which is the lamb and wool capital of the world! Will check these out more!

Cynthia Landrie said...

I am always looking for great ways to live more naturally and with less chemicals. These would be a great addition to my laundry room.

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

I have some wool dryer balls - they're great!

Terri Ramsey Beavers said...

I've tried dryer balls in the past and I really liked them. I moved into a small apartment last year and I used my dryer space for storing my ironing board and other things so I hang my clothes on a drying rack instead. I should buy some of these though to give as gifts.

Laura Funk said...

I have got to get my hands on these wool dryer balls. I have heard nothing but great things and your review substantiates those feelings

Carmen Perez said...

I have never heard of or seen these before. Where are they sold? I've always just used the Downy dryer sheets.

Crystal Green said...

I've never heard of these before, but they do look like a product worth having. Thank you for telling us about them.

April Mims said...

I've never used dryer balls before. I love that it's a natural chemical-free alternative.

Cassie said...

I have never heard of using dryer balls before! These sound really cool and I want to get a set for our laundry!

Penny Struebig said...

So glad I read this -- I've not heard of them before. If they shorten your drying time, it seems they would save you money on your power bill. Definitely looking into these.

Yellow Tennessee said...

I have never heard of these. But anything that shortens drying time and reduces static sounds incredible.

Tyra said...

I have never heard of this but this sounds great! Anyway to reduce chemicals in a small way but not sacrifice quality is a great thing!

Vera Sweeney said...

I have heard great things about wool dryer balls! I am all for anything that lowers the usage of my dryer.

Micah David Bella said...

This is all new to me since I lived in a tropical country but good to know about these things. This might come in handy if I decide to relocate.

Liz Mays said...

I've never tried anything like this, but the idea sounds so practical. I really should give them a go!

Rebecca Swenor said...

I have heard a lot of good things about these balls. I would love to try these and I love that you use no chemicals at all. Thanks for sharing.

Franc said...

This really helps fast track the drying process. It also helps in taking care of the fabric.

Lisa Samples said...

I've never heard of these. Right now we aren't using anything in our dryer and we probably should be...will check these out, thanks.

Thomas Happel said...

These sound awesome. I always use dryer sheets so if i can use something more natural Im all in.

Travis N. Tucker said...

I have never heard of dryer balls before, but they sound pretty darn cool. Since I do the laundry in the house, I think I might try these out soon.

Sharon Wong said...

I have never heard of dryer balls before. I am currently using those dryer sheets. I am going to have to try this out. Thanks for sharing! :)

Colette S said...

I've not used dryer balls before. I want to try them.
I'll have to look for them at the store.

Kandi said...

I haven't used dryer balls before either! I have been seeing a lot about them lately. Maybe I should give them a try.
