Bjarkarhóll has Everything Needed to Knit
They’re warm. They’re chic. They repel rain and they remind you of your Icelandic experience. What makes them special is that you can also make them yourself. The Icelandic sweater. Bjarkarhóll in Reykholt on the way to Geysir and Gulfoss has ready-made sweaters in many different styles. If you enjoy knitting and creating something special, they also have kits to take home with you. These are complete with all you need to make a genuine Icelandic wool sweater. The patterns come in a range of styles for men, women and children.
This is a one-stop shop for everything associated with knitting - a knitting mecca. Whether you try a pre-packed kit or use one of the multitude of patterns available in the shop, you’ll find all you need to create your own wool sweater here. Wools from different countries sit alongside the classic Icelandic wool. All the accessories and accoutrements are available, including a Fair Trade product: a special range of buttons created in Nepal. These add a unique feature to your creation.
Woollen gloves are common but how about a glove to hold a cold beer can? Certainly a conversation piece! For those with poor circulation, the fingerless gloves are a boon.
Handmade jewellery and natural cosmetics make this a gift shop with a wide range of specialities to choose from. You can also order from them online - so once others start asking about your creation, you have a ready source of supply.Bjarkarhóll
