I washed and lanolized all of my wool for the first time yesterday afternoon. They are STILL WET! Did I do something wrong? Do they normally take that long to dry?

I put mine under the ceiling fan- seems to help a bit- plus turn them inside out once the outside is dry. Mine always take at least a day to dry.

Did you roll them out in a towel? I know that always helps alot for ours. But they still take a day to dry. Also try putting them on a cookie drying rack. I figure it gives more airflow. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">

Spin them in your washing machine (just on the spin for about 30-45 seconds) and that will help a lot! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

we have a clothes line strung up in our basement and i hang thme there and point a fan right on them...if i wash them in the morning, they're usually dry by evening or even a little sooner....mine a wool jersey covers so that may make a difference in how they dry compared to a knitted soaker. HTH!!
