We stayed in Iceland in 2014 and regretted not purchasing an Icelandic sweater. I found them online here and ordered one for my husband for Christmas. It was shipped incredibly fast and is absolutely beautiful!

Just stopped in to purchase some nice Icelandic yarn for a gift . Nice service. Good selection. Beautiful colors to choose from. I thought the prices for the yarn were reasonable.
