Modern Medieval Stitch Mittens
These non-knitted mittens are the recreation of a labor-intensive Viking-era technique called Nálbinding which was abandoned suddenly in 1066 when the much easier knitting we know today was invented. Prior, yarn was stitched with a single needle made of wood, antler, bone or horn. The technique had been all but forgotten until an ancient mitten was found perfectly preserved in a bog, its construction revealing the ancient technique.
