Handknitted sweaters from 100% Icelandic wool

The Icelandic Landsmót Hestamanna will be held  in Hella in the summer 2020. That is very close to my shop. We decided to have few sweaters that are related to horses handknitted for that occasion. They will be for sale in our small shop along with all the gorgeous yarn we make. A sweater can be bought at our shop or ordered with email – It is also possible to order a sweater you dream for, with the colors and pattern you love. We took a few pictures to show you the outcome.

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.
