Rewrapping Attic A/C Ducts

Getting condensation through my ceiling A/C vents, which means the insulation is unwrapping itself from my attic ducts. The insulation itself is slightly is damp from the condensation.

Is it a grave mistake to simply re-tape the insulation around the ducts if it is damp? Must replace it with new insulation?

thanks in advance, as always.

Wet insulation is no good, even dried after. better use new ones.
