Hand-made in a rural Peruvian village, these alpaca balls are felted one-by-one by a female cooperative of skilled artisans- in collaboration with their local alpaqueros. Change your laundry forever with these reusable fabric softeners.
These best-selling Alpaca Dryer Balls have been a Poko-family favourite for a long time! Coloured balls are naturally dyed with materials within 2km of the Peruvian artist’s cooperative with whom we work directly with.
Add 3-6 balls into your dryer with your load of laundry and go! The balls absorb moisture and create air circulation in the dryer. This wind effect in the dryer reduces dryer time. At the same time, the balls replace disposable dryer sheets and plastic dryer balls along with the harsh chemicals within them.
For added natural scent, when clothes are dry, add 2-3 drops of your favourite essential oil to the balls, and then dry clothing and balls for another 10 minutes on a non-heat, air-dry setting.
The dryer balls are made from 50% Peruvian alpaca and 50% Peruvian wool.
The Muslin Eco Bag (that comes with the pack of 6 balls) is made with 100% GOTS-certified organic cotton.
Each ball is approx. 3" (8cm) in diameter and 9.5" (24cm) in circumference
