Holiday package

Would you like to treat yourself, or someone you love, with a surprise-knit-package?
Would you like to get a package that you can open at Christmas... or even sooner?
Or do you want to give someone that kind of treat?
We at Uppspuni have that kind of a package to offer.
For only 35 Euros (42 USD) you can have the package sent to your home. But you don‘t get to know what is in the package - that is the way with Christmas presents, right. 😉 The only thing you get to know is that it is to be knitted and it is a garment, and it is rather simple for beginners as well as those who are experienced knitters.
But you get to choose if you want red, green, blue or lilac colors.
Yarn, printed pattern, and shipping are included in the price.
All available information given at huldauppspuni@gmail.com and orders can also be made there.

The Mini Mill and our yarn

We are proud to be the very first Mini Mill in Iceland. We have twelve different machines to fully process an extraordinary soft yarn from our own sheep and our neighbors. The yarn is 100% Icelandic in the natural colors of the sheep. It comes in different weight that fits different knitting projects. Other colors like blue or yellow, we either get by dyeing with plants or dyeing powder.
