Alafoss Wool Store, Mosfellsbaer

4.2
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.

  • During a tour stop to go to the Golden Circle. Glad to hear that it's more Eve company in Iceland. The prices are pretty high! Very nice product damage

  • Very nice shop where the wool items sold are not dyed, but are virgin wool, and the pieces are made by local artisans. Liked it very much.  more »
  • I needed something much warmer to have. Stopped by this place and found a cute wool sweater along with a cute hat. The lady there was very nice. Best of all this kept me warm my entire trip.  more »
