Bio Living Handmade Wool Dryer Balls

 Wooly Naturals Handmade Wool Dryer Balls– CLICK HERE TO ORDER –

When you use dryer sheets you and your family may be coating your clothes and skin with a thin film of artificial and toxic chemicals.

Bio Living care about you and the environment. Each ball is handmade from 100% organic New Zealand wool offering a healthier and safer alternative to fabric softeners.  Wool is naturally mildew resistant, flame resistant is a natural air purifier and wool absorbs noise making them quieter in your dryer compared to other types on the market.

Here’s how they work… our dryer balls soak up 30% of their weight in water.  As your laundry dries, the wool balls gently fluff, lift and evenly distributes humidity in the dryer ensuring laundry balance, consistency and efficiency leading to a quicker drying time and less friction against your clothing fibers.  Less friction leads to less static, softens your precious fabrics, and is gentle on your delicate clothing.

Easy to use… place wool balls into your dryer with damp laundry and set drying time less than you normally do or use a moisture-sensitive setting on your dryer.  Over drying has a tendency to cause static cling.

Use 3+ dryer balls for small laundry loads and 6+ for larger loads.

For added scent, add desirable drops of your favorite essential oil to wool balls.

Valuable tips on the care of your laundry are included in each pack of dryer balls.

Each wool ball and wool sheep coin purse are individually handmade with love and care by Nepalese women – with each purchase you are contributing to their livelihood, medical care, education, and better quality of life.  We thank you for your support!

Each purchase prospers fair trade for education, medical care and the livelihood for the underprivileged woman of remote Nepal who handcraft, with love and care, each wool ball and purse.  A portion of the proceeds from each sale is donated to help rebuild communities impacted by the recent earthquake.  We thank you for your support!

  4. Hi, whom has certified these as organic?

    • HI Janet,

      Thank you for your question.

      When our company was founded, the most important element in sourcing wool dryer balls/wool products was finding a supplier that offered certified organic.

      Our supplier in Nepal has an authentic certificate from their New Zealand wool supplier stating their wool is certified organic. The verifying body is AssureQuality. Certified organic when it comes to wool from sheep means the Livestock Growers MUST use practices that encourage livestock health and well-being such as sheep have not been exposed to chemical like pesticides and are kept and cared for with humane and good farm conditions. We are confident that our Livestock Growers have exceptional livestock management practices.

      The requirements for producing certified organic wool products go even further. The fleece must be cleaned without harsh detergents, acids, petroleum-based oils or other chemical processes.
      In organic processing, only biodegradable detergents and degreasers are allowed. Carbonization, or treating wool in acid baths to dissolve plant material, is prohibited by organic standards.

      Our supplier in Nepal also has exceptional management practices and strictly follow the organic standards.

      We take pride in both our Nepal Supplier and New Zealand wool supplier for providing us such exceptional quality our customers have grown to trust.

      Warm regards,

  5. Hi there,

    Just wanted to clarify your ethical position. I see you donate a portion of profits to Nepal which is great. I can’t see any information in your posts about whether there is a guarantee of fair wages for the women who create the products for you and against forced child labour. Would you be able to confirm the company position on these? Many thanks

    • Hi Lindsay,

      We would be more than happy to warm-heartedly answer your query.

      Every package of wool dryer balls and handmade sheep coin purse our loyal customers purchase, employs women workers who reside in a remote area of Terai Nepal.

      Each purchase supports fair trade and promotes the welfare and well-being of these rural women and their children including sustaining their community. Upon visiting both factories in Nepal (Kathmandu and Teria) last spring and spending time with these remarkable women, we are very proud and grateful to have witnessed that our success and continued success (because of our sales) is making a difference and because of their efforts in production, they are making a difference in our lives by handcrafting products our customers have grown to love and trust.

      A quote from World Fair Trade Organization:

      “Fair Trade is a trading partnership, based on dialogue, transparency and respect, that seeks greater equity in international trade. It contributes to sustainable development by offering better trading conditions to, and securing the rights of, marginalized producers and workers – especially in the South.”

      This statement could not be more accurate when it comes to the respect and trading partnership Brio Living offers and receives from our supplier and workers.

      We are extremely happy to have partnered with our wool dryer balls supplier as they respectfully offer exceptional trading conditions with their workers, who are like family to them… we have seen and experienced it first hand.

      Words from our supplier:

      “Our Company Mission:
      Our company concentrates on promoting Nepalese handmade products to encourage and develop the skills and lifestyle of
      the village people from the remote Terai region & Himalayan parts of the country. We employ many workers from the economic level while offering benefits such as health-care, education, food and clothing to their children and many more. We trust and rely on fair trade which supports social benefits and our selfless focus is less on profits and importantly 100% free from child-labor. It is our mission to make a bright future for the woman groups, their children, socially, nationally and internationally.”

      Again, we are proud of our free trade arrangement with our supplier and our beloved workers in Nepal who provide wonderful products handmade with quality and love our esteemed customers have grown to trust.

      Be well,

      Michele
