Bellwethers Dryer Balls are hand crafted from eco friendly, 100% virgin wool. Save 15% to 50% on drying time, which can save you up to $110 in electricity costs! Made by a local WAHM (work at home mom), find them at Enkore Kids.
It's OK for your dryer balls to have pills. Since they are wool, this will happen. You can choose to shave them with a sweater shaver or do nothing. Either way is fine!
They work by circulating air around your clothing and by absorbing excess moisture. That will cut your drying time by up to 50%! Now that does depend on how many you use (I recommend at least 6) and load size.
We recommend a minimum of 4 dryer balls for a small load of cloth diapers, however 6 to 8 is ideal for full loads. Plus, if you're like me - you don't necessarily have time to pick out the dryer balls that get caught up in the clothing before starting the next load so it's always nice to have a bit more than you need so each full load always has at least 6. We sell dyer balls in sets of 2, 3, 4, and 6 with the most cost savings for you when you purchase in sets of 6.
They last for years! Just be careful of velcro.
No, they are still undyed, 100% virgin wool. You'll receive a variety of color(s) that I have represented in the pictures on my website. There are 8 different colors but are all browns, ivory, grays and silvers.
Because the wool is felted, it won't leave lots of wool lint on your clothing to make you itch.

To hide the chemical smell, companies load dryer sheets full of chemical fragrances, which are potentially carcinogenic.
