Í Álafoss er að finna mikið úrval af íslenskum ullarvörum, allt frá hefðbundnum handprjónuðum lopapeysum, hinum geysivinsælu Álafoss teppum yfir í mikið úrval af allskyns lopa og bandi og öðrum vörum tengdum prjónaskap. Að auki má finna mikið af minjagripum og listaverkum frá hinum ýmsu lista- og handverksfólki sem flest hver eru á sinn hátt tengd íslenskri náttúru. Álafossbúðin er staðsett í gömlu ullarverksmiðjunni og þar hefur verið sett upp lítið minjasafn þar sem skoða má sögulegar ljósmyndir og vélar til prjónaskaps, m.a. sokka-prjónavél frá 1930, sem gefur góða innsýn í sögu og menningu ullariðnarins á Íslandi.

Álafoss - tradition of quality since 1896. When Álafoss was established at the end of the 19th century, it was marked as the true beginning of Iceland's wool industry. Álafoss is located in the old factory house by the waterfall Álafoss that was used to drive the mills of the old factory, which for decades were the leading manufacturer and exporter of Icelandic wool products. There you can find a great selection of the popular traditional Icelandic wool sweater ("lopapeysa"), knitting wool yarn and almost any wool product you can think of as well as experience this important side of Iceland's industrial history in the form of the factory building and an exhibit of selection of old knitting machinery and photographs from the early days.

Where to stay in Reykjavik

In this highly walkable capital, many of Reykjavik's hotels and guesthouses offer close proximity to the city's popular attractions, bars, and restaurants. The waterfront offers an exciting dose of activity. Although Reykjavik provides plenty of accommodations to its flocks of visitors, there is a dearth of budget options in the city. Price-conscious visitors should consider staying in a hostel, with both private and dorm rooms available, or a nearby campsite. Although the campground is not as centrally located as some hotels, guests are better positioned to take advantage of the natural surroundings.
