How do they work?

As the felted wool balls tumble in the dryer, humidity is drawn out of the wet fabrics by pulling and absorbing moisture into the center of the dryer balls. This decreases drying time substantially.

Do they work in all types of dryers?

Yes, but the size of the laundry load, model and make of the machine will determine the degree of efficiency. A newer machine will have better performance overall, but it will still reduce drying time by 30-50%

How many do I need to see my drying time decreased?

For lighter loads: 3-4
For medium size: 4-6
For heavy loads (jeans, towels): 6-8

How do I avoid static?

Because every dryer is different, in the beginning you will have to experiment with your machine to find the right combination of balls & drying time needed to avoid static. If you have static, you are over-drying and wasting hydro energy.

Will wool fibers get in/on my laundry?

No, you will not notice any wool fibers on your laundry.

Are the balls noisy?

No. Because they are soft-felted fibers, you will not hear the load knocking that other synthetic dryer balls or rubber balls create. Nor will you have any burning rubber smells left with after using them.
