When Álafoss was established in 1896, it marked the true beginning of Iceland's wool industry. Today, the original factory building houses the Álafoss wool store, in the Álafosskvos in Mosfellsbær. Behind the store, you will find the beautiful Álafoss waterfall and the Varmá river, that both were used to drive the mills of the old factory.
History still resides within the walls of the old wool factory, now the Álafoss wool store, where you can explore the history of this important Icelandic industry and find a selection of old knitting machinery and photographs from the early days.
We proudly stock Alafoss Lettlopi, a popular and highly authentic Icelandic yarn that is sure to become treasured in your yarn and garment collection.
