8 Years of Growing Naturally

8 Years of Growing Naturally

It started with a mom determined to create a healthy home for her newborn son. Years later, Cyndi Prince's passion for protecting the environment has allowed all of us to take thoughtful steps to do the same one laundry load at a time. LooHoo Wool Dryer Balls are made in Maine using 100 percent domestic wool and now sold nationwide—from local craft fairs to high-end retailers.

Quest for a Healthy Home Begins

While pregnant, Cyndi Prince learns that the chemicals in dryer sheets are toxic and children are especially susceptible to exposure. And since Cyndi and her husband were about to do A LOT more laundry and cloth diapers, she crafted balls of wool to act as a natural fabric softener.

Company is Launched

After months of trial and error, testing different wools and methods, Cyndi develops one that works and the first wool dryer balls are born. The new mom carves out time to build a company during her baby boy’s naptime and bedtime.

I have 9 Loohoos sitting in my dryer right now!

With all the allergies in my family, these are a must have. Grateful for how long they last for this family of 7!

Happy Birthday. I love my LooHoo Balls. I bought a new set of sheets for our bed. I washed them, put them in the dryer with a dryer sheet, and were still very ruff. After every wash, and fabric softner, they were still ruff. I washed the sheets and used the LooHoo Balls, and behold. The sheets are soft. Thank you so much.
