Well, I am not the knitter, my wife is. I was there, however, with her. They have a reasonable selection of islandic wool but mainly wool from out of Iceland. There is a large selection of English knitter literature available and tools.

A beautiful store with a lot of knitted samples, patterns and magazines in several languages and fair prices. An easy walk from downtown — worth the trip. Plus the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Free coffee and seating for those that get dragged along!

As a knitting freak, my yarn obsession must be dealt with on a regular basis. So I always make an effort to visit local yarn shops whenever I travel. I visited Storkurinn when my husband and I were in Reykjavik in August, and I found...More

Although the shops's selection of actual Iceland wool is a little limited, the yarn shop in general is a great stop for all knitters/croche-rs. And the colors they do carry are beautiful. The staff is very friendly, and they have a good selection of books...More

So I am an commited knitter and was so excited to get my hands on some real Icelandic wool. A bit disappointed due to the small selection of products acutally produced in Iceland. But luckily I got my hands on some German skeins.More
