  1. Liza, sometimes my fingers work faster than they should. I was getting ready to thank you for responding but I hit the submit button too soon, so again thank you for responding to my post.

  2. I like the idea of these. Yet I m allergic to wool. Ughh

    • Hi lily,

      Oh no! I am sorry you are allergic to wool! If you are our subscriber (or planning on becoming one) we can either substitute wool balls for something else or pause your subscription for a month.

      You can always email us support (at) globein (dot) com to make such requests.

  3. I’ve been cutting back on subs, but just signed up here due to the boxes mission and this boxes theme. Feel good about it!

  4. I already have some of those, so I hope they’re not what’s included in the Benefit basket! I do really like mine though!

    • I also get the benefit box but now I’m wondering if I should upgrade to the full box! It’s a gateway drug, that’s what it is!

      • At least with globin you always get a beautiful basket each month. So far I have always liked everything included anyway. I also love looking at unboxing videos on YouTube then I go to eBay to search for everything that I liked from the past boxes! Boy have I spent a fortune there and will continue to do so on all of the items that I didn’t get that I wanted!

    • I’m just the opposite – I’m hoping they’re in the Benefit Basket!

  5. This is one of my favorite subscriptions. I’m looking forward to trying these.

    • Mine too. Their customer service is some of the best, if not the best, that I’ve had with a box so far.

  6. Yay! I really needed new wool dryer balls! My current trio is starting to look worse for wear after a year of daily use.
    These things are amazing- they work great, and I’ve saved a lot of money by not buying fabric softner, just eco friendly detergent.

  7. Looking forward to trying these! I bet they’ll work awesomely for the fleece bedding I use for my guinea pigs!

    • They do!!! We use fleece for our guinea pig and our two bunnies.

  8. Hi all,

    Liza here from GlobeIn. These dryer balls are actually handmade exclusively for our customers in Kyrgyzstan, where wool is a way of life. (The country is world-famous for its shyrdak felt rugs.) The wool balls were made by artisans of Altyn Kol Women’s Cooperative. The cooperative employs over 1,000 craftswomen and serves as one of few sources of cash income available to the region’s remote farming and shepherding villages.

    And yes, Ann and heyhey are right: they are an amazing chemical-free and eco-friendly alternative to dryer sheets and liquid fabric softener 🙂

    • Hi-

      Are we getting three of them or just one? I hope it’s three.

      Thank you

      • Sara,

        You are getting the full set of 3!

    • Thanks for the background info; that’s cool!

    • Hi Liza. I also have heard of the laundry balls, the ones that go in the washing machine. Does this company also make those?

      • Hi Imogene,

        For these wool dryer balls we approached the artisan cooperative we have worked with before. Wool (felt) is a huge thing in Kyrgyzstan and these artisans have been working with wool for decades so that’s why it was a perfect fit. They only made products made of wool though.

        The laundry balls you are talking about, what are they made of? Can they be made by hand? Maybe you will come up with a new cool product idea! 🙂

        • Hi Liza.

          No, unfortunately they are made of plastic. I had forgotten what they were made of so I had to Google to find out. Both seem very interesting to try and sound like they would save you a lot of money in the long run.

    • I think I may sign back up for GlobeIn. I have been waivering for a few months but this is a great spoiler and I love what you guys are doing here.

  9. They sound like a great idea. But it’s summer, so what I want are the cloth pins!

    • I live in a large city…hanging out my clothing makes it smell like the yucky city. Nana, can you send me a box of fresh air? 😉

    • Cute clothes pins would be cool! I hang up all my bunnies’ towels outside and would love some nice and handmade ones. And there are also indoor uses! 🙂

  10. I have never heard of wool dryer balls before, how do they work??? Would not be good for my auntie, who is allergic to lanolin though 🙁

    • I have been using wool dryer balls for about a year now and I’m allergic to lanolin as well and I have no problems.

      These are amazing. I am able to use a couple and reduce my dryer time in half. In my dryer, towels used to take two times through the dryer to dry on the hottest setting but with these they are dry in a snap! It’s pretty amazing!

      • Also allergic and have used these for eight years with zero problems. I sometimes scent mine with essential oils.

      • That is amazing, how do you get them in and out of the dryer without touching them? Rubber gloves I guess? My auntie is so allergic she once got hives on her hand from rubbing my shoulder while I was wearing a wool sweater, poor thing.

  11. I’ve wanted to try these too. They sell on Amazon for about the same price and have good reviews.

  12. I’ve never heard about wool laundry balls till a couple days ago. I think they look super interesting, be curious to know how well they work.

    • Agree.
