They have a large number of men's and women's beautiful sweaters, hats, and scarves. Not sure if all the hats and scarves are handknit, but the sweaters are.

The prices are comparable to other shops in Reykjavik, maybe a slight bit lower. But, anything made in Iceland is expensive. They only sell things actually knitted in Iceland. Very good selection.

Although I didn't purchase my Icelandic sweater here, the staff was very nice while I was browsing and there was no high pressure sales pitch. The merchandise was of excellent quality.

Like almost everywhere in Iceland, pay with your credit card. I don't think they accept USD.

They do and I did. And they will help you by email to pick colors if you're not sure and give you advice on issues that you may have with any patterns from the Lopi books.
