Garnbúðin: Knit your own Icelandic Wool Sweater
-Garnbudin offers everything you need for knitting
Icelandic knitting products are popular souvenirs and gifts to bring home from Iceland. Garnbudin (The Yarn Store) now offers you a chance to make your own Icelandic Wool sweaters, with its wide array of yarns, knitting pins and instruction books. You can even order them online and thus make yourself a little piece of Iceland without ever having gone there.

Garnbudin is located in Akranes, just outside of Reykjavík, and offers all you would ever need for knitting. As the name indicates Garnbudin offers a seemingly endless variety of yarn, including Icelandic yarn, various multi-colored decorative yarns and the Argentinean AslanTrends yarn.

Anna Silfa Þorsteinsdóttir, owner of Garnbudin, says that Icelanders are especially avid knitters. “Icelanders used to export knitted goods and the whole family would sit together and knit; men, women and children. The most popular product is of course the Icelandic wool sweater, while another unique Icelandic product is the two-thumbed sailor’s mittens,” says Anna.

You can find the patterns of the Icelandic products in special guidebooks, available in English. “The Icelandic yarn is available in many beautiful colors. The Icelandic yarn comes in two types “þel” and “tog” which give it its unique durability and resistance to the elements. All products from Garnbudin are available online, so you can knit sweaters for your whole family, which is not an uncommon tradition in Iceland, long after your visit is over.
