Well if you like handmade jumpers or cardigans or pretty much any type of clothing this is worth a visit. Of course items are pricey but fantastic quality. Alternatively if you are a knitter then just buy the wool - all local and naturally dyed...More
OMG if you love knitting don't miss this amazing shop. The assistant was so helpful sorting me the wool for 2 jumpers at half the price I'd pay in the U.K., and a fraction of the cost of buying it ready made. She reckons I'll...More
I don't really have the budget to buy a full-on Icelandic sweater, but I have a nice ear-warmer and excellent mittens from this place. The products are high-quality, the staff is friendly, and everything is handmade locally in Iceland. It's not cheap, but the goods...More
I make a point of visiting here everytime I travel to Reykjavik. The wool here is probably one of the few things that are cheaper than in your home country. The store is two rooms, the main room as you enter is mostly wool sweaters...More
It's a small store with many great sweaters. However, they are very expensive. I know they are handmade but it seems like a lot. I ended up getting a nice sweater from another store that was from Iceland but not hand knitted. If you're committed...More
Full disclosure in title.
I do NOT knit. But my wife is a knit wit (I say this lovingly, of course). She works for a LYS in the midwest and said the prices for the quality of yarn skein of icelandic wool was much cheaper...More
I thought that a visit to the Handknitting Association would be one of the highlights of my recent trip to Reykjavik. However, the shop was somewhat of a let down. The knitwear is not well displayed and is similar to what I saw in shops...More
This is the only place I would buy my pure Icelandic wool. These are real Iceland wool products made by local people. I have done my research and most stores sell wool products made in China. The prices are a little expensive but worth having...More
I did an 11 day road trip in Iceland and completed the ring, I searched in many stores in the many little towns around Iceland and none came as close as the hand-knitting association, the jumpers are of top quality and amazing selection. First impressions...More

The knitting shop is located near Hallgrímskirkja church, literally about 1 block away, Skólavörðustígur 19, 101 Reykjavík! I am not certain how long it would take you to get there from cruise ship. But if you can figure out where your cruise ship docks and the location of the church you can figure the trek. Reykjavik very walkable city, enjoy!
