The feeling of warmth

Katla Woolen Knitting Factory

Our products are made from the wool of Icelandic sheep

Katla Woolen Knitting Factory

Prjónastofa Katla is a small family business that was founded in 2020. Our main goal is to continue the work of the woollen knitting factory in Vik and Myrdal which has been operating since 1971. Hence, the name of our company is a tribute to the first functioning knitting factory Prjónastofan Katla (1971-1985). Like the previous knitting factories, our task is to create products from the domestic raw material. We produce blankets, caps and gloves from Icelandic wool yarns. Our design is based on local culture, as well as natural objects characteristic of this part of the world. The uniqueness of Icelandic wool, resulting from over a thousand years of adaptation to the difficult conditions on the island, provides the best quality of our products. The two-layer construction of the fleece makes it thermal insulation, breathable and water-resistant. We believe that thanks to our experience and respect for tradition, we are able to offer you something more than just a product. We want them to attend you for years, providing protection during windy and rainy autumn and a large dose of warmth during long winter evenings.

You’re welcome to visit our small wool knitting factory in the charming town of Vik, at Sigtún 2 street, near the Víkurkirkja Church.
