Wool Week in South Iceland 2024

Date: 28 sept - 5 october 2024 

After the wool week 2021 and 2022 a greatßt was a success, the Thingborg Wool Center is expected to be the center of Wool Week again in October 2024. Iceland has a long tradition of sheep farming and processing the unique wool of these sheep, which came to our country with the first settlers in the 9th century. In the past, sheep farming was the basis for survival on the island. In recent years there has been a renewed interest in wool processing and there is a very active group of wool handerks and craftsmen.

South Iceland's sheep farmers and wool craftsmen organise Wool Week together - you're invited!

Arrival day: September 28 (pick up in Reykjavík in the evening)

Departure day: October 5 (afternoon / evening or October 6 with extra night in Reykjavik. Please inform us about your arrival time!

The programme combines wool activities with experiences in Icelandic nature. You will experience hot springs, waterfalls, lava formations, autumnal colourful valleys, black sand beaches on the North Atlantic coast and much more.

In the Thingborg Community Hall with its cosy café, knitting meetings will be held again and there will be a great range of courses, exhibitions and presentations. Courses include knitting, dyeing, spinning, felting and much more.
