After discovering wool dryer balls and how much they could simplify and green the laundry process, mom of five kids, Christine Krogue, partnered with her friend and felt producer, Kalpana, in Nepal to begin producing them in 2012. Today, Mama Moon Boutique employs over 250 people in Kathmandu, Nepal using fair trade and ethical practices. While Kalpana manages the production process, Christine then imports the dryer balls where they are then inspected and packaged by work-at-home moms in her hometown of Salt Lake City, Utah. The premium wool that they use is sourced from sustainably raised sheep in New Zealand.
Free of any dyes, chemicals or synthetic fibers, these dryer balls shorten drying time, soften and fluff fabric, and reduce static without the use of chemical-filled dryer sheets or liquid fabric softeners. They last for over 1,000 loads of laundry, which ends up saving time, money and the environment.
