I was very excited to learn of the Alafoss wool mill on the outskirts of Reykjavik and couldn't wait to go there. We caught the bus which stopped about a minute from our hotel and the lovely driver dropped us off a short walk from the mill, with instructions of how to find it. It felt quite adventurous taking the bus and seeing some sights outside of the main tourist areas. The mill has a lovely situation and the store itself was brilliant. We got a very warm welcome on arrival and the staff were very helpful too. There were some discounts on the knitwear but it was the yarn that I was after. I could have spent hours in there as there was so much to see. I bought some gorgeous quality yarn for myself and some for friends. I also bought a few Icelandic trinkets, rude not to.
If you enjoy crafting make sure you visit and keep plenty of space in your luggage you'll be spoilt for choice.
