Spring Knitting Retreat in Icelandic Nature
Knitting Tour in North West of Iceland during the Lambing season. Textile Museum, optional walks, lopi sweater.
Departure: 2020, May 23-29
This enchanting tour will take us to the beautiful West of Iceland where the landscape, the first flowers of spring, the green moss, the utterly cute lambs and kids, the busy bird life, will inspire us as much as the knitting artefacts in the Textile Museum in Blönduós that we will have the chance to visit. Hélène will tell us about the Icelandic knitting traditions with a focus on the youngest of them all, the famous Icelandic lopi sweater. We will meet with many local crafters, spinners, dyers, tanners for an unforgettable insight into the Icelandic culture and knitting heritage. This trip includes optional hikes and participants will have the opportunity to explore and take small walks where we will be staying. Accommodation in comfortable guesthouses, one of them with an outdoor hot tub.
