Description

This nalbinding needle is made from bone and has carved decorations at the top to ensure your fingers have a good grip on the needle. This needle is 8 cm long and has a thickness of around 0,8 cm.

These nalbinding-needles were used in the Viking and Medieval era to practice the knitting technique of nalbinding. In contrast to sewing needles, nalbinding needles are flat. This technique of knitting is a precursor of the more modern crocheting techniques. The difference from traditional weaving techniques is that with nalbinding you can produce textile products like socks, gloves, and caps. Nalbinding fabricates a dense, warm textile. 

Historically these valuable needles were stored in designated needlecases/boxes from wood, brass, or other metals for example.
