No, it is not wise to use a fabric that has wool fibre content as a display fabric. The wool fibre contains sulfur as part of its chemistry, which should be avoided because of the off-gassing. Also the wool fibre component is attractive to insect depredation, also something to avoid. Two thumbs down from this textile/costume conservator.
