?? about drying wool

Ok I got a new dryer..front loading HE. It has a rack to lay wool sweaters...do you think it would work for longies? Should I do low heat? I just don't want to felt them. They will lay flat and not aggitated at all. Anyone do this?

Well I am doing it now and it is working wonderfully!!! The longies don't move a bit and they are drying slowly b/c I have the heat on low but ti will take like an hour instead of like 3 days LOL. I will lyk when they are done and if all is aok.
