I purchased a Barefoot candle mat kit. Does the wool in the kit need to be warm hand washed? I contacted the company and M* but no answer. Has anyone here made Barefoot kits?
OK laugh for the day. My DH was bugging me and I typed Barefoot...it's suppose to be Bareroots.

There is an FAQ on the bareroot website that talks about doing a pre-rinse (not a washing). Here is the link to that page, hope it helps.

Do not wash the wool that comes in that kit, it is only wool felt, not felted wool. There is a big difference. One will wash well and just shrink a bit more, the other will turn into a ball of junk or just fall apart.

Some shops that specialize in wool rug hooking or wool applique will make their own kits with felted wool, usually hand-dyed.
