LooHoo Wool Dryer Balls

Have you ever put wool felt balls in your dryer?

No? Well then today I’d like to introduce you to my friend Cyndi Prince.

Cyndi and I have a lot in common—we live in the same community in midcoast Maine, and we are both mothers and business owners aiming to provide healthy, natural, and chemical-free products for children and families.


Cyndi Prince, LooHoo Founder

Cyndi is the founder of a great company called LooHoo that produces wool felt dryer balls here in Maine. She formed the business shortly after the birth of her son, having learned about the harmful effects of the chemicals in dryer sheets and fabric softeners.

Wool dryer balls are a natural alternative  that soften clothes safely and really speed up the drying time of large loads of laundry, including cloth diapers. Cyndi has produced her dryer balls in a beautiful variety of hues that brighten up the task of doing laundry and make it more fun!

The inspiration to create LooHoo grew out of  Cyndi’s creative passions (she is also a photographer), and her desire to create a consistently high quality wool dryer ball from local resources, durable enough to last for hundreds of loads.

While I love to hang my clothes on the line, it’s hard to do during the long Maine winters. That’s when I rely on my dryer more. I started out using three LooHoo balls a couple of years ago, and now have six in my dryer. I can attest that they really do speed up drying time, which in turn cuts down on our electric bill and reduces our carbon footprint.

Being the fan that I am of LooHoo, I was delighted when Cyndi generously offered to give away a Deluxe Starter 3-Pack to three readers of Moon Child

LooHoo Deluxe Starter Pack - colors

For today’s giveaway, LooHoo is pleased to offer the following gift to THREE winners:

A Deluxe Starter 3-Pack of LooHoo Wool Dryer Balls

The set comes in an attractive box, making it a perfect gift for a green mama. (LooHoo felt balls are also fun toys and great for juggling!)

Each prize (a $27.99 value) includes free shipping within the 48 contiguous United States. The giveaway is open to all readers, but a winner outside the continental U.S. will be responsible for the cost of shipping.

    Perfect! The colors are lovely. We currently do not use anything in our dryer (no dryer sheets, nothing) but have been looking for an alternative and this is it! I’ll definitely habe yo invest in some before our new LO artives!

    A completely natural product that helps speed up drying time and is fun to use? Sounds awesome!

  • Reply Heather November 24, 2013 at 3:16 pm

    I love the idea of this product. We too try to line dry most of our clothes, but now that winter is coming we will be using our dryer more and this will definitely help :]

    I haven’t used dryer sheets or fabric softener in years, but would love to try these! We cloth diaper, so this would help immensely! I’ve been searching for dryer balls that don’t resemble dog toys!

  • Reply Lauren Tourville November 24, 2013 at 4:26 pm

    We just had a family conversation this morning about stinky chemical dryer sheets and how we don’t like them! We would live to try these wool dryer balls.

    Always wanted to try these! I use the plastic ones now, but would love the wool upgrade.

  • Reply M November 24, 2013 at 5:29 pm

    I bet these would really work well to dry our cloth diapers. It tends to be a fairly small dryer load and they just don’t get tumbled enough.

  • Reply Mildred November 24, 2013 at 5:45 pm

    Perfect for all those things that get tangled in the dryer.

    I love wool dryer balls. Except with my boys and dogs they always seem to go missing.

  • Reply Veronica November 24, 2013 at 6:46 pm

    What a wonderful idea. I do not use dryer sheets but have used the plastic hedgehog looking balls. These are beautiful and all natural and the idea never dawned on me. I would even use them outside the dryer as a beautiful center piece or as part of a nature table. They are lovely.

  • Reply Robin November 24, 2013 at 7:27 pm

    Wonderful idea. I would love to try these!
