Default Washing Wool Felt

I am making some pillows and want to use wool felt for certain parts of the applique ie the eyes and nose. When people wash their pillows will the wool felt wash up okay?

Thanks!

Wool felt will shrink when washed in warm or hot water.
I grabbed that from this page: https://www.ericas.com/fabric/woolfelt.htm

I would suggest washing it and ironing it before cutting it.

I have washed it and it shrinks, puffs, and gets frizzy.

Personally, I would skip the wool felt and use Polar Fleece. Washes beautifully, with no pre-washing required.
