Fodor's Expert Review Þingborg

Selfoss Specialty Store

This nonprofit wool workshop is housed in an old white house by the Ring Road. Since the 1990s, local women have been knitting here and selling their wares, including lopapeysa (the iconic Icelandic wool sweater that has kept Icelanders warm for centuries). They also sell yarn and knitting needles, so visitors can learn how to make their own sweaters.
