Spin spin spin for around 6 hour dry time! (only once, I just got carried away )

Yup, almost all of my wool takes 2 days to be fully dry... and that's even with rolling it in a towel and then turning it inside out about halfway through it's dry time. I just rotate my stuff so I have some clean/drying while I know the others are getting used and will next need washing so I'm never fully out of wool to use.

I plan for 2-3 days of drying time. It tends to be humid here, so it takes a little longer.

...same here, I live on the coast so sometimes it seems to take more than 48 hours to dry

Normal wool drying time at my house is 3-4 days, I've even had stuff take over a week before it really varies depending on where you live. One trick I've found is to move the drying rack in front of the heater, it usually cuts drying time in half.

you can also lay them on a dry towel and the moisture will absorb faster

2 days and that is after spinning it in the washer to get most of the water out.

SPIN CYCLE! It rocks. My wool usually dries in 12 hours.

Also, I lay all my stuff on a towel on top of the dryer. Or, I sometimes use a small electric heater place near the wool set on low.
