NALBINDING - Books & Needles

Nalbinding is an ancient technique used to produce hats, socks, mittens and other woolen goods using a single short needle and lengths of woolen yarn.
Although later superceded by knitting (a technique that uses 2 needles instead of one), nålbindning produces garments of a superior quality with stitches that do not run if snagged and a weave that is more dense and therefore easier to felt, providing maximum protection from cold or moisture.
It is for this reason that the nalbinding technique was still used until very recently in some parts of Scandinavia and it is a growing practice again in the Viking re-enactment community.
