Tumblewool is offering one of our readers a giveaway of their products: wool dryer balls and felted soap. Wool is an all-natural product that is safe for your family, easy on our environment, and beautiful to boot!

Tumblewool is a home-owned business in Clinton, New York that strives to be environmentally conscious while bringing a little touch of beauty into everyday life, even if that beauty is while you do your laundry! The main product of Tumblewool is the fantastic and very well made dryer ball, which helps people use less energy when they dry their clothes in a dryer.

From our reviewer, Laura at Pug in the Kitchen:

Dryer Balls

Natural Parents Network Giveaway: Tumblewool Wool Dryer Balls and Felted Soap — $44 ARV {8.24; US}

Personally, I have a lot of faith in dryer balls. The opportunity to test this product out came at the perfect time; we sadly lost the dryer balls I had made when we moved, and have not been able to use our laundry line much this spring. After trying them out, I have nothing but good things to say about the Tumblewool dryer balls! There is nothing like knowing your clothes will actually be dry when you take them out of the dryer.

For the most part, I’m also not dealing with static cling when using these, either, which is a great plus! When the laundry is done, there are fibers standing up with static electricity all over the dryer balls, but my clothes are cling-free. The only clothes that haven’t responded well to the Tumblewool product are my workout tops that are decidedly not cotton. However, I will say that they are the same clothes that never responded to the standard dryer sheets, either!

Additionally, I really like that the dryer balls are colorful and the size is perfect — about the size of a softball. They are easy to find in your laundry basket and don’t roll under my couch or tempt my dogs to use them as toys. However, I can’t say the same for my children, considering that they just discovered baseball and any spherical object is now  fair game to them.

Felted Soap

Natural Parents Network Giveaway: Tumblewool Wool Dryer Balls and Felted Soap — $44 ARV {8.24; US}

To be honest, I had never seen felted soap before, and I hesitated to use it because it was so beautiful! In addition, at first I didn’t know how to use it. Because I have a very low-flow shower head, I wasn’t able to get the soap to lather up in there at first, and for the first time you use a felted soap, you do have to get it very wet in order for the soap to lather up enough to get through all the layers of wool. After realizing this, I filled my bathroom sink with hot water and let the soap soak there for a while; then, I just squeezed the soap in my hands until I got a good lather worked up.  

Now when I want to use it, I can just get the bar wet before I turn on the shower and am able to wash (and even shave my legs) with the lather. My skin is very sensitive, but I haven’t had any sort of irritation from the soap or the wool so far, and that’s surprising because typically my sensitive skin is even fussier from all the sun. I’m a fan!

BUY IT!

You can purchase your own Tumblewool products on their website. Their prices range from $7 to $28, and they have very reasonable shipping. These would be a fantastic gift idea for your friends and family members, especially since it is such a thoughtfully made product by a small company, and is useful, too!
