I agree with Jan that you will need to knit a test swatch and see if it felts. It is helpful to felt a test swatch even if you know the yarn will felt so that you know how much it will shrink in each direction so your bag doesn't end up oddly shaped.
My other comment was going to be that I have been warned away from making a stash bag unless all the yarn is the same brand and weight b/c otherwise they may felt differently and mess you up.
I have ziploc bags full of wool ends I had been saving for that very purpose....
