Leaping Sheep is a family owned company whose mission is to make the world a greener place, one ball at a time. Fiber has been a big part of our life from raising alpacas, processing fibers and hand spinning yarn. Upon researching the wonderful properties of wool the dryer ball evolved. We manufacture white, solid colors and designed balls. All the wool used to produce Leaping Sheep wool dryer balls is imported from New Zealand. New Zealand is the world’s largest producer and exporter of crossbred wool and enjoys a reputation for producing some of the finest quality wool in the world.
Our dryer balls boast the reputation of being 100% natural, solid wool to the core of felted wool. No Chemicals are used in the processing of our fine dyer balls. They are all handmade and have the wonderful characteristics of a handmade product. All the dyes in the colored dryer balls are Azo-free and low impact. The key benefit of azo-free dyes is the removal of the metallic component, and carcinogens which can create a textile-induced chemical sensitivity, or worse. After the balls are made they are washed in hot water and eco friendly soap to ensure a squeaky clean ball and eliminate bleeding of the colored balls.
The other beauties of wool is its non allergenic quality and it does not promote the growth of bacteria and dust mites or give off harmful emissions, like the plastic dryer balls do. Wool fibers absorb and neutralize polluting gasses, even formaldehyde, which is in many of the clothes you buy from the store. Simply toss four to six Leaping Sheep dryer balls in the with your drying load and you will decrease your drying time by 25%, your clothes will be softer, less wrinkles and you no longer need to use costly dryer sheets.
We want to do our part to keep your family healthy for many years. Join us in the journey to make mother earth happy and healthy again, it’s the only home we have.
