Peat soil repelling water?

In my biology class we did a lab on different earth types, and one of 
the strange things that happend was that when we dried peat soil to measure
the percentage of water it contained, it afterwards repelled water. Why?
It should have been able to absorb alot of water.

If you have an answer please mail me.
