Hello all of you nice people who are going to visit Tórshavn this summer.
I get e-mails from people wanting advice on what to see in Tórshavn when they arrive. Especially they want to know, where to visit if you are interested in knitting and want to buy yarn or wool.
In Tórshavn there are a few shops, you must see. All of them are in the town centre, and they are:
Sirri, Áarvegur 12, close to the harbour, Sirri yarn and Sirri’s own designs.
Guðrun & Guðrun, Niels Finsens gøta 13, the famous Faroese designers. Their shop is located in the pedestrian zone .
Snældan, Niels Finsens gøta 25, Snældan yarn and Snældan’s own designs.
TINAMIK, Niels Finsens gøta 35, is the shop of the Faroese Handcraft Association. You will find both traditional and modern knitted items.
Navia, a brand new shop in the shopping center SMS.
