I received the alpaca balls a few days ago, but didn't have my first opportunity to use them until tonight. I noticed less wrinkling with a large load of mostly bedding (sheets and pillow cases) and the smaller gentle cycle load of clothing came out wrinkle-free and in great shape. No more dryer sheets for me!

I received these yesterday afternoon and already did a load of laundry with them. I love them! I am happy to find a a way to reduce the use of plastic - no more jugs of softener! I bought the second set to gift to my mother. Mostly I am happy to find some provided by an American farmer and not made in China.
A Heritage of Swiss Precision and Excellence Making Warm and Fuzzy Friends
Alpenwood Alpaca Farm resides in the beautiful Southern Minnesota prairies, on a piece of land that -famously- used to be wide open cornfields. Hans Trechsel, a Swiss native who moved to the area over 50 years ago planted hundreds of evergreen trees on this land. These trees stand strong and proud, to this day. His dream was to recreate the Alpine woodlands he so loved as a young boy, for himself and for his family and community to enjoy. His daughter, Laurie Trechsel, established Alpenwoods Alpaca farm to honor the legacy of this place, it's people and all of its creatures, great and small.
Alpenwood's mission is to provide the highest quality fleeces to the small but enthusiastically growing North American alpaca-goods market. We cooperate with other farmers, fleece-processors and knitters to produce absolutely gorgeous and uniquely functional garments, yarns, felting and spinning supplies. Alpaca fleece products are as beautiful as they are durable and ecologically sustainable. We are so proud to be a part of this community.
Zookeeper since 1978, Laurie has an obvious love for all animals and especially the more unusual kind. Alpacas were an opportunity to put her knowledge and skill to good use at her family farm.
