Connotations of "woolgathering"

Dear English speakers, how do you feel about the expression "woolgathering"? Does it necessarily have the negative connotation of "idle/absentminded" etc.? Is it neutral? Can it be understood as a positive synonym of "daydreaming"? I feel it is rather pejorative, but I might be wrong.
