I guess this isn't so much of a response as something I've been wanting to say for awhile but haven't had the right opportunity.

A wool dryer ball is a wool dryer ball is a wool dryer ball.  Honestly, Wooltopia dryer balls are not magical and do not hold any wizard powers.  They will bounce around in your dryer and save you some drying time, soften your clothes, and cut down on static.  And guess what?  Most of the other dryer balls out there will do the same.  Are all dryer balls created equal?  Well no.  But for the most part, they're all going to achieve the same results.  I'd like to tell you that Wooltopia dryer balls are super special and will also fold your clothes, but sadly we haven't figured that feature out yet.

I've been told by a very reputable source that any dryer ball over 2.5 oz will have the same beneficial qualities.   So a 2.5 oz ball that is 3 inches around, or a 2.5 oz ball that is 12 inches around...or a 3 oz 3 inch ball or a 3 oz 12 inch ball...it doesn't matter!!

That's not to say that dryer balls cannot be unique.  There are different scents, colors, methods.  But all in all I believe you are buying the experience of the maker.  One might last longer than another.  But since most of them will last a year or 2, not much research has been done in that area.

So there it is, the truth about dryer balls!  Buy what you want, from who you want and know that wherever you buy them from you are going to get a product that works...because wool dryer balls really do work!!  But they work because they are wool dryer balls, and not because any brand is more magical than the other.


  1. Well said Erin!! I couldn't agree more :)

  2. Erin you know I love you! And as some of your 'competition' I wouldn't have it any other way! :)
