The General Bean - Coloured Dryer Balls

These pure wool dryer balls are made with 100% Canadian (Albertan!) Premium Wool and each ball is completely handmade by small family business owners The General Bean.

The General Bean wool is ethically sourced and cruelty free. It is processed with minimal chemicals in an environmentally conscious small mill. All items are ethically made right in Canada, reducing carbon footprint and supporting local industries.

Each ball weighs an average of 2 oz and all three balls can be used together in a single laundry load. The balls work together to share moisture absorption levels, reduce static and increase the efficiency of your dryer.

Purchase a single ball below or up your laundry game with a set of 3!

No more single use dryer sheets!

These wool dryer balls are wonderful. I have been using a set of 3 for a couple years and only recently wondered if it was time to replace them. I’m delighted when I think of all the dryer sheets they have replaced. Highly recommend!

Goodbye dryer sheets!

I’m so glad I don’t have to use single use dryer sheets anymore! My dryer ball doesn’t shed and is still in great condition after many uses. I recommend using two at a time for bulky items like towels and sheets. If you want to scent your laundry, add a few drops of essential oils into the dryer ball near the end of the dry cycle!
