The benefits of wool dryer balls
Wool dryer balls are becoming all the rage. That makes the team at B & N Laundry very happy because we love them too! They are a great way to use a natural resource to decrease drying times, soften clothes, and most importantly, GET RID OF ICKY DRYER SHEETS!
So what makes B & N Laundry dryer balls different from most others on the market? B & N Laundry Dryer Balls are made here in the USA. Our wool comes from one of the oldest wool mills in America, it's shipped to our shop and then passed out to people in our community who would like to make some extra money. Once the balls are formed, they are brought back to me and I put them through the wash and dry cycles that allow them to become the felted ball.
Yes, I could join the masses and import our balls from Nepal. It would save me lots of time and money and I would increase my profits. But that's not my goal. My goal has always been to be able to give work to those in my community and to support the Natural Resources here in the US. To understand why this is so important, is to know my story.
When my husband was on dialysis and waiting for a kidney transplant, our friends and neighbors came together in a million ways to help us. They held fund raisers, gave money, brought us groceries and listened to my fears. I always vowed to give back. Unfortunately, I'm not in a position to give back financially, but I can give back by giving work to those in my community who need it. It feels really good to run my business by supporting others and buying American Made raw materials. I may never be rich because of it, but it makes me feel like I'm doing the right thing.
When you buy from B & N Laundry, you helped give work to one of our neighbors. Pretty cool.
