First did you wring them between 2 towels.

Then I lay them on top of my dryer between to towels. This seems to help. I had one take me almost a week to dry. When I did it on the dryer it took me 3 days.

Re: Dring wool Q

I usually spin the water out of mine in the washer LOL They usually dry in 24-36 hours I've even been known to put them in the dryer on the drying rack on low heat to speed things up LOL

If mine aren't dry on their own within 24 hours, i set them up on a drying rack in front of a box fan.

How fast they dry depends on a lot of things!
Be sure to roll the wool between 2 towels to squeeze out the water and put them on a drying wrack where they can get a breeze.
When it rains outside, my wool takes forever to dry because of all the humidity, but taking 2 days to dry isn't uncommon.

I soak the water out of them with towels, and then set them in front of the dehumidifier. It takes about 2 days or so. I once tried to dry a soaker without wringing it in towels or putting it in front of the dehumidifier and it never dried, just started smelling really bad.

Re: Dring wool Q

I squeezed them all in two towls and then left them in the basement which could be what took so long at first. Last night when they still werent dry I brought them up to the dinning room. The whole house is a bit cold though. Maybe I should try the bathromm. Gets really hot n steamy when dh showers.
