Hvammstangi – over 40 years of knitting
KIDKA is a knitting and sewing company that produces knitwear out of Icelandic wool for its own clothing line. Ist name stands for beautiful and high-quality wool products, which are fashionable, comfortable and genuine Icelandic.
The knitting factory in Hvammstangi was founded in 1972. The owners of the company are Irina Kamp and Kristinn Karlsson and they bought the knitting and sewing company in 2008 and named it KIDKA. This year, KIDKA is celebrating its 10th anniversary!
You can find our products in shops all over Iceland. Our factory is situated in the beautiful Miðfjörður area, in the small town Hvammstangi, halfway between Reykjavík and Akureyri, just 5 min from the main Road 1.
KIDKA sweaters, cardigans and accessories are knitted by knitting machines. The process of washing, brushing and steaming the wool gives it a softer and fluffier texture than one is used from the hand-knitted pullovers, but at the same time doesn’t lack the important feature of keeping its owner warm all year-round. If you stop by in Hvammstangi you are welcome to take a look in our factory and see it yourself. We like to show you how your sweater is made.
The clothes and accessories surprise with a big variety of designs that are inspired by traditional Nordic patterns as well as modern fashion trends and colours. During the whole production process the wool garments never leave the country, which makes them genuine Icelandic. A visit in the KIDKA Wool factory provides a unique insight into the genuine Icelandic way of wool production. In our cosy factory shop you can purchase our KIDKA wool products or buy some hand-knitted wool products for a good price.
