Prices on the large selection of woolens and handicrafts at Álafoss Factory Outlet, Álafossvegur 23 (tel. 566-6303; www.alafoss.is), are 15%-20% below Reykjavík levels. Coming by bus isn't worth the effort -- the nearest stop is a 15-minute walk away. By car, follow Route 1 north through three traffic circles in Mosfellsbær, then turn right off the fourth traffic circle onto Álafossvegur. The store is 800m (2,625 ft.) ahead on the left. Hours are Monday through Friday 9am to 6pm and Saturday 9am to 4pm.
