Removing wool fiber from chair casters.

What would dissolve wool fibers but not plastic? I have a bunch of office chairs on which the casters have become clogged with wool fibers from an oriental rug. The wheels do not come off the casters, and the casters are difficult to remove from the chairs. After spending an hour laboriously removing the wool fibers from just one wheel axle with a mat knife and tweezers, I'm looking for an easier way. Maybe some fluid in which I could set the wheels and dissolve the wool fibers without harming the plastic casters? Any ideas on this or other directions?
