There are many places to find sweaters and other knitwear in Iceland. This is the place - it is handknitted, relatively (!) cheap and there is a large selection and good service. two minutes from the main street.

We stayed in Iceland in 2014 and regretted not purchasing an Icelandic sweater. I found them online here and ordered one for my husband for Christmas. It was shipped incredibly fast and is absolutely beautiful!
