In love with Icelandic wool

I just picked up 10oz of gray Icelandic wool from Weaving Works. I am totally in love with the smell and texture of this fiber! I first spun a sample of it and made a 2-ply cord to wear as a belt for my Halloween costume.
Then I felted a sample of it and was very impressed at how quickly it felted up. I decided to add some merino wool to it and made a creepy neckscarf to wear for the season. I would like to felt longer scarves, but unfortunately I only have the length of my bathtub to work in right now. Sigh.
