Icelandic Handcraft

     by Ada@

I just started a new adventure in Iceland! A country that makes me very curious about, and I can’t wait to discover it … at least a little bit…

A few days ago, I was to Selfoss, a small city in Iceland, and I passed by a small shop, a place that drew my eyes. It was a shop where you can watch how two women make “Lopapeysa” or Icelandic sweaters and more other beautiful handcraft things.

This nice handcraft shop brought back my winter childhood memories when my grandmother was making for me, my brother, and my cousin’s sweaters, socks, and hats. I wish I would have some pictures of them, but I didn’t have a camera when I was a child. The differences between my grandmother’s sweaters and these Icelandic ones are the colors and the wool, wool from Romanian sheep, not the Icelandic sheep. Also, the Icelandic ones are more updated to market demands.

Sometimes you can feel at home, just finding something that brings back memories and, you find yourself smiling.

I hope that makes you [ADA] Explore more!
