I'm not sure what the answer is concerning that amount of nylon with the wool - but what I would do is knit up a swatch and try felting it to see if you get the desired result.

I've felted with 75% wool. But I would suggest doing a swatch and felting it just to see how it's going to act. It'll probably be fine.
