OK, here's a pic of my attempt to do wet-felting over soap.  It's mossy green with just a bit of white roving.  Overall, it seems to be pretty even.  I had a hard time initially wrapping the roving over the bar, but once it was in place and I wet it down, it seemed OK.

One question:  there's a spot near the edge where it's felted, but there's a little bit of a "ledge" -- too small to photograph, but a little lump where the felt must have been folded over on itself.  Could I needle felt a wonky bit like that into place to make it smooth?

Do not try to needlefelt it. You will break your needle. Trust me I know.
