FAQ | LooHoo Wool Dryer Balls


What are LooHoos and how do they work? 

LooHoos are wool dryer balls that you put in your clothes dryer to help lift and separate your clothes. Using several LooHoos creates a constant motion, allowing more air to circulate around your wet laundry so your clothes dry faster. The more dryer balls you use, the less time it takes to dry a load and you can reduce your dry time by 10 –25%. 

LooHoos are absolutely ideal for any and all laundry and are an essential asset to help reduce dry time, conserve energy and save you money.



Ok, I bought a pack of LooHoos, now what?

Toss all your LooHoos into your dryer and let them happily roll around with every load of laundry.  


How many LooHoos should you use?

It varies based on the size of your load of laundry. For best results, use the LooHoo Buying Guide below.



Facts about LooHoos

  • Made in Maine individually by hand using 100% domestic, lanolin-rich wool
  • Safe, durable, high-quality wool dryer ball
  • Approximately the size of a baseball: ~9 inches in circumference and weighs 2 oz.
  • Undyed LooHoos - Cream & Light Gray are natural sheep's wool colors
  • Colorful LooHoos are dyed by the wool mill using safe, low-acid dyes


Why Wool?

Wool is used because of its incredible properties including the ability to:

  • naturally soften clothes due to friction of the balls against the fabric
  • make clothes fresher and smell cleaner since wool has the ability to absorb toxins and odors


How long will they last?

It depends on how much laundry you do. LooHoos will last for hundreds of loads. After months of constant use, they show some signs of wear but can still be used. We recommend adding a Refresher Pack every 4 months.


Will the colors run?

At LooHoo Headquarters, we have been using a mixture of colorful and natural LooHoos in my dryer with EVERY load for over 4 years, and I have never had any colors run. 

LooHoos come in a beautiful range of non-toxic colors including undyed versions. The colorful wool we use is dyed at a US dyehouse using a low-acid dyeing process which is a very safe process.
