All of this! I always use a fan to speed up drying time.

Re: Drying wool

I use Disana wool and always spin it out in our top loader. Then because it is not heavy with water you can hang them without stretching. I make sure they are open while hanging so that air circulates inside and out. They are double knit and still dry in 12 hours or less.

serisouly, if you hav a sweater rack for your dryer, it's the only way when you are in a hurry! the woolies lay flat so there is no agitation. easy peasy!

Re: Drying wool

You know... my dryer did come with a rack, but now I have no idea where it could be. Hmm. I'll have to ask DH and try to find it! We've obviously never used it LOL!

Re: Drying wool

I either roll in a towel or spin in the dryer, then put them on a rack over a floor vent (or in front of a window w/ a fan when it's warm enough)

Re: Drying wool

I pop my soakers on the top of a large soda bottle, then turn on a ceiling fan. I can dry a woolie in as little as an hour if it is warm, overnight when it is cold out.
