Iceland: Knitting Under the Northern Lights

September 19-23, 2024​​​

Registration closes May 31​​!


This trip is custom made with a focus on introducing the history, culture, and rich tradition of knitting in Iceland. Our group will meet local Icelandic women who are experts in working with Icelandic wool, visit a local mini mill, and learn about the production of lamb wool. We will also participate in a workshop where we hand dye our own yarn with Icelandic herbs. There will be time to visit the more popular tourist sights on the Golden Circle and soak in a natural hot pool.
