"Alafoss wool factory outlet was easily the best shopping experience we had on our entire Iceland trip. The store has been around for a long time, and it's not hard to figure out why! They sell lots of knitted stuff: sweaters, hats, gloves, socks, etc. They sell yarn so that you can knit yourself. They also sell souvenirs and books, and our very best one is a picture of one of Iceland's waterfalls that we bought there. I look at that every day and remember not just the waterfall (which we went to) but the store in which it was bought! The staff is very friendly, and the prices really are better than just about anywhere else in Iceland. They also have a great website (with international shipping) for those things you couldn't buy on your Iceland trip! The store is in the lovely town of Mosfellsbaer, which is very close to Reykjavik, and on the way to the Golden Circle. Don't miss it!"
I can honestly say I have never had such excellent customer service before from any business! I thoroughly recommend them to anyone else wanting to purchase goods online from Alafoss."
"Being a knitter and a fibre snob, coming here was a delight. That's right, I came here for the yarn yet to determined what it wanted to be when it grew up. Beautiful yarn abounds the shop from lace weight to the ideal worsted for not only creating your own sweaters but is also the best for felted slippers. Knowing how much work is involved in hand knitting these intricate sweaters (I'm more a shawl/sock knitter), I was more than happy to buy one here from one of the local crafters. So, if you're a knitter, coming here to see various colours and weights that may not be available in your own LYS is a must. Good thing yarn is squishable for packing!"
".....I could have spent hours in there as there was so much to see....."
"I usually steer clear of "souvenir" shops when I travel; they' usually offer "general issue" items that are a waste of money. Not this shop. Its wares were beautifully chosen, often hand-crafted items typical of Iceland -- soaps, tiny elves with hand-knitted clothes, beautiful books of postcards, and of course endless sweaters, mittens, hats and a great selection of wool for knitting. My credit card was JUMPING out of my wallet; I had to forcibly restrain it. And I echo the reviews that mentioned the on-line service; friendly, personal emails accompanied my order of more yarn"
"....It's a great quick stop if you're planning to do the Golden Circle route! ...."
I would recommend having time for shopping and hiking."
".........We would highly recommend the shop and its staff. The shop also sells lots of sweaters and scarves and Icelandic things. And the place is really nice too."
I was able to order online and my purchase came in 10 days. Amazing service and wonderful quality."
"If you knit, want to, or just love sweaters, you will want to go here. The selection of traditional handknits is terrific and priced better than in Reykjavik, by far. And there is all sorts of incredible Lopi yarn, the one thing that was cheaper in Iceland than at home. I should have brought a suitcase just for the yarn I wanted to buy."
Plan on a lengthy visit if you are into any wool craft."
You won't be disappointed."
