|Álafoss in Mosfellsbær|
The store does not only sell lopi and knitting supplies but also a good variety of hand knit items along with different hand made and/or Icelandic product. It's actually a popular stop for tourists especially during the summer.
Other types of yarn are also sold in the store, mostly from Hjertegarn. I've tried both the superwash DK and superwash fingering (baby). Both were reasonably priced and great to knit with. Then there's also a fine selection of buttons, needles and other knitting related stuff.

One of the best things about shopping at Álafoss is the service. I always find the staff very informative and friendly. It's also great to be able to browse through all the Lopi knitting books and pamphlets or just browse the store and get ideas from the many, many handknit items. Sometimes it's just easier to decide which color to buy when you can see a sweater or mittens made with the ones you're trying to choose from.
I definitely recommend this place to anyone who likes to knit with lopi (or just knit) and enjoys traditional handknit items.
