The main store is in Visby Gotland, but this small store still holds very local and interesting yarn from the Gute sheep/wool (Gotlandsfår), Linnen yarn and a series of their own patterns made by series of designer, e.g. you can find Elsebeth Lavolds special pattern here.

This is a unique shop, that has true Swedish yarn, patterns and garments that honours Gotland and the Swedish pattern heritage. The selection is therefore very slim, but this is honest great yarn from the Gute sheep (wool). Also linnen yarn can be found, and a new mohair-wool blend. Not a wide variety, but fantastically matched colour selection, that the Stockholm-section seems to "run out of" when you need just "that" colour. Have a look at the knitted garments for inspiration. Browse through the patterns, and try a "landscape" sweater, or some other fun! A bit pricey, but having met the fantastic people behind this brand, know that you are preserving a unique heritage from Gotland and that the shop owners have worked hard to keep fleece, wash, preparation, spinning and dyeing as local as possible... Jepp,"tröjkellingar" were sure good knitters in the old days. And some day I will afford the great Sheepskin coat.

Visited this on tuesday and seemed to be just clothing store at the moment. Had some skeins of yarn in the windows but saw only clothes inside.
Don't know if they'll be selling more yarn when the renovations are done.
