I am so thrilled with these laundry pods. What a wonderful feeling to not have to worry about what your skin is absorbing from clothes washed with chemical laden junk! Our clothes are clean, soft and fresh. We even used them at the Laundromat! Thank you for a fantastic product! ❤

I wanted to wait until I used these to leave a review. I've used them a few times and so far no complaints! I try to only use clean products that create minimal waste and this product definitely delivers both of those things. I will add, I usually wash my clothes at tap cold but I've been doing warm with these just to make sure they can fully dissolve. I will be re-purchasing.

This is hands-down the best bar dish soap available. Not only does it cut grease better than any of the liquid soaps, it keeps the sponge clean and prevents it from smelling like mildew. I also use it as a stain stick for clothes and works wonders. Highly recommend!

colors are excellent and balls are currently very soft but I know they will get a bit tighter and smaller. but the purpose was to get away from dryer sheets.

I'm giving it 4 stars only for the environmental effort. There wasn't any difference between this detergent's performance and a regular one, although it could have done a better job on my husband's sportswear. I used 2 pods for the HE for a small-medium load. UPD: I later found both pods in the tub not fully dissolved. Shipping: The glass jar was put into a plain USPS envelope... It arrived completely torn and smashed (luckily the jar wasn't broken). After paying for shipping as much as for the item itself, I expected a little better packing job... P.S.: There was also a stain remover that I didn't order. If it was a mistake I can return it, just send me a return label. There was no indication whether it was a free addition. If so, I really appreciate the gesture! But it is in plastic tube and doesn't seem to be recyclable.

These all natural laundry pods work very well! I actually washed my garage towels using a pod; all of the grime came out! It was so surprising that my husband put the towels in our bathroom thinking they were our newer towels! Amazing!
It started on a whim.
About three years ago my family made the switch to cloth diapers. If you aren't familiar with modern day cloth, I highly suggest you do some research. These are not your mothers cloth diapers! When you use cloth diapers, you learn a lot about laundry, soaps, water, fabric softeners, build-up, and perfumes. The most notable change is that you have to ditch fabric softener. I am the type of person who likes to make things rather than purchase them.
So I taught myself how to make wool dryer balls, the alternative fabric softener. I made some for me and a friend. And when the yarn dryer balls fell apart, I learned how to make them with wool batting. I went to the local fabric shop and purchased some wool batting that is used in quilt making. I made my first set of batting dryer balls. And then I made some for a friend. I had fun doing this and encouraged people to learn how to make them and make the switch from fabric softener sheets.
It was one day in July of 2014 that changed the direction of my life. I had made some dryer balls for a friend that worked at our local wellness store. I had been trying to get her to do it for a while, but she had no interest. When I gave them to her a work, her boss happened to be in that day. Upon seeing them she told me she wanted to carry them in her store! And just like that I had my first customer before I even had a product to sell!
Ovella is the Galician meaning for sheep. I am a big Outlander fan and wanted to include some Gaelic in my business. My finger slipped when I was translating and Ovella came up. It was perfect. I love the name, and now name all my collections in Galician words that mean what the product line stands for.
Upon opening Ovella Wool, a lot of things have changed. I now purchase my wool from a local wool processor with whom I have created another partnership. The wool that goes into each and every 100% wool dryer ball comes from this family owned business. The colors are in fact my own. I love dyeing wool, something that I didn't think I would get into. My favorites are colors from The Terra Collection, which features natural dye. Working with nature, sometimes you don't know what you are going to get, and I love being able to make four or five colors from one berry or twig.
Experimenting in a lot of different crafts and activities, I have learned over the years what I like to do, what I can do, what I will do, and what I love to do. Creating designs with colors and shapes on wool is something that I can see myself doing for the rest of my life. The whole entire process is one that I not only enjoy to do, but love to tell people about. Wool is such a great material, from being non-combustable to mildew resistant to completely reusable and renewable, it has so many functions that we can use it for. Wool dryer balls are just one of those.
Hi! I am the owner/creator at Ovella Wool. Every product that I make is handmade by me! From the rolling of the wool, to the dying and felting, to the final inspection and packaging, I do it all. If you have any question, be sure to ask!
