This is one of those can’t miss places. It is a wonderful place to go to learn about how the wool industry works in Iceland and buy beautiful items made at the factory. Check out their web site.

Great place to shop, learn about wool used, see factory workers making goods, informative staff and workers. Free samples of left overs for the crafters and the best place to buy your sweaters, toques, mitts, etc.
