    I very often keep FVF in a zip lock for use at work and in the car. I will sometimes leave the zip lock bag of SG FVF open overnight to dry it out. And even then it could use more drying time. So I will toss them around and leave them out a little more. I agree with dmkerr as far as English or Lat blends go. Although I don't like them "wet", I don't like them too dry either.

    I think some blends can never be too dry to enjoy. Most latakia heavy English benefits from it actually. Flakes too.

    I try to leave it out for a couple of hours. I usually choose my evening pipe when I get home from work and lay out the toby before doing the Mr. Rogers routine and putting my human clothes on. After dinner and cleanup it's usually dried out a bit.
