When Álafoss was established in 1896, it marked the true beginning of Iceland's wool industry. Álafoss is located in the Álafosskvos, in the old factory house by the waterfall Álafoss (e. Eel Waterfall). Álafosskvos is a tiny "village", with only one street and around 50 habitants, and is now occupied with local workshops, a coffee house and the Álafoss wool store.

The Álafoss wool store offers a great selection of authentic Icelandic wool sweaters that are hand-knitted in Iceland and are marked with the knitters names. In addition, you can find other wool apparel and accessories, the well-known Álafoss wool blankets, knitting yarn and supplies, Icelandic art, design and souvenirs at a reasonable price.

The main store in Mosfellsbær is located only 15 minutes away from Reykjavík, on the way to Þingvellir. You can also find Álafoss in the city center (Laugavegur 8), a small store with selection of wool sweaters, blankets and souvenir items. For more information or to shop online, please visit www.alafoss.is.

Álafoss has earned a sterling reputation throughout the years for its hospitality, cozy atmosphere and flexible service. When in Iceland, you should seize the opportunity to get a brand new traditional Icelandic wool sweater (lopapeysa), and you'll be sure to find a beautiful one at the Álafoss wool store.

The best way to get to Álafoss from Reykjavik is to take road 1 to Mosfellsbær. When you've passed through three roundabouts and made a right turn at the fourth one, you need to drive around 800 meters (2 minutes) until you reach the Álafoss wool stores.
