We rode the ¬†#15 bus out to Mosfellsb√¶r to go to the¬†√Ālafoss Wool Store. Compared to Central Reykjavik, this area is on the rural end of a suburban spectrum. ¬†That is, there’s not a lot going on out there in terms of commercial development or housing. Here’s the view from the bus:

Once we got off the bus, there was an over the river-and-through-the-woods walk to √Ālafoss.

The √Ālafoss wool factory was founded at the same spot in 1896.¬†There were displays of old knitting and spinning equipment, knit garments for sale, and of course‚Ķ yarn!

I indulged in a few yarn cakes. Yummy!
