You can, but I wouln't bother tumbling your itti outers, there just isnt any need, also maybe try line drying and then 10 mins in the drier at the end, this should soften them up! And remember to tumble on low!

As Hanna says, I think most people try to save energy and money by line drying and then just tumbling a little at the end to soften them up. It really isn't worth tumbling pocket outers and wraps as they dry so quickly :wink:

I wouldn't tumble wraps or the outers of Ai2's or my pocket outers because I was a bit worried about damaging the PUL from the constant tumble drying. However everything else ends up in the tumble dryer, and the pocket outers, wraps etc are on the radiator driers.

:idea: As others have said, I used to line dry then do 10 mins just to fluff them up!

If im going to peg out, i tumble for 10 mins on cool before i peg out.
I never tumble pockets or wraps though.
Kissaluvs do go very hard when line dried!!
