Nalbinding

Hello! I am looking for anyone who knows NALBINDING or would like to learn. It is a scandinavian folk art popular among Viking reenactors.
I have created a bunch of introductory videos on Tiktok and I’m trying to create a learning community.

Do you have an image of the skill? There seems to be a lot of variety when I searched so it would be lovely to see what you have been up to. :grin:

That looks amazing (and so warm). What type of tools do you use? Is it more like knitting or crochet?

All you need is a dull needle with a big eye, and a yarn you can add lengths to. I like to use single ply wool/merino because it is easy to fuse. The brand I get the most of is from Browns Sheep Co., Lambs pride in worsted weight.
