The Yarn Bombed Rock

The ‘yarn-bombed rock’ is inspired by a local legend about the ‘Troll Woman’s cave’. Local women have covered a large rock with knitted fabric that they have knitted themselves.

It is located in Bartalstrøð í Sandur, in a peaceful nature area, close to the ocean and lake Gróthúsvatn. 

The stone decorations can be seen at Bartalstrøð in the period between mid-May and mid-August.
