Hand-made in a rural Peruvian village, these alpaca balls are felted one-by-one by a female cooperative of skilled artisans- in collaboration with their local alpaqueros. Change your laundry forever with these reusable fabric softeners.

These best-selling Alpaca Dryer Balls have been a Poko-family favourite for a long time! Coloured balls are naturally dyed with materials within 2km of the Peruvian artist’s cooperative with whom we work directly with.

Add 3-6 balls into your dryer with your load of laundry and go! The balls absorb moisture and create air circulation in the dryer. This wind effect in the dryer reduces dryer time. At the same time, the balls replace disposable dryer sheets and plastic dryer balls along with the harsh chemicals within them.

For added natural scent, when clothes are dry, add 2-3 drops of your favourite essential oil to the balls, and then dry clothing and balls for another 10 minutes on a non-heat, air-dry setting.

  • Muslin Eco Bag : cold water wash and hang to dry. Do not machine dry as that will cause the bag to shrink.
  • To keep the ball's maximum effect, periodically place each ball in a sock, wash on a hot cycle with detergent, remove the ball from the sock, dry the ball on a hot setting.
  • Any natural pilling can be removed; however, this is not necessary as the pills make balls more effective.

The POKO Difference

Artisan made

We travel off the beaten path to bring you independently made products by makers connected to their local communities and environments. We focus on long-term relationships with them. Their skills shine through in their small-scale operations, resulting in quality craftsmanship that’s often individually handmade.

Directly traded

Fair trade is one thing & ensures a high degree of confidence that the people, the materials & the environment are not exploited in the supply chain. Direct trade on top of that means the artisan-to-Poko-to-you chain is transparent and, well...direct. 

Materials matter

We strive to choose materials that have a minimal impact on the environment, and that stand up to the test of time & use. This means working with materials that the artisans choose and have access to, in tandem with developing new products with sustainability & durability in mind. 

Shop with heart. Enjoy with soul.

Shop to create the kind of world you want your kids to inherit.

To live richly, we want to surround ourselves not just with beautiful things, but possessions that have meaning and represent the kind of world we would like to help create.
