I recently got some fabric to make a new skirt with. The bolt said it was 74% viscose, and 24% wool. I didn't notice if the bolt had care instructions, or if it did, I forgot to check.

Also is there any tips for dealing with this type of fabric. I love the drape of it, but it also seems to wrinkle just by looking at it.

I have more or less only worked with cotton fabrics before.

The pattern I was going to make with it is Butterick 5366

That sounds to me like machine washable at max 40 degrees.  I think it will make a beautiful skirt to that pattern.
And I hope you have a good iron.  That's the reason why I try not to use viscose fabric (I dislike ironing).

Dry Cleaning is obviously your other option...Can you believe that some of the new dryers have some sort of Dry Cleaning built in!  I am with Soorawn, I hate ironing...so I have to choose my sewing fabrics carefully...

Make sure you post pictures when your sewing project is finished!
