Oslo Yarn Shops: Heimen Husfliden

If you’re joining us again, dear reader, you’ll know that this post is the second in a series about Oslo Yarn Shops (likely self-evident to some degree from the title). My life as a knitter in Norway begins at and revolves around Heimen Husfliden, for the most part, and it’s such a staple of Norwegian life that perhaps it ought to have been our first stop.

Located downtown at the old GlasMagasinet building, Husfliden is more than yarn. It’s  your one-stop shop for all things made and/or designed in Norway: bunad (Norwegian traditional dress), handmade soaps, finished textiles like blankets and table cloths, boutique fashion…in short, as you might have guessed, high-quality goods for both local and foreign customers. If you only have time for one yarn shop in Oslo, consider making it Husfliden — as much for the yarns as for the panorama of Norwegiana!
