About the Technique:
Much of nalbinding is thick and bulky to create warm items like socks, mittens and hats. It’s beautiful in it’s own way. But there are so many limits to be explored and played with in this craft. During her exploration, the author created a new technique she calls ‘open structure work’ with interconnected sections that look airy and lacy, yet show off the unique structure and properties of the wonderful ancient craft of nalbinding.
Nalbinding is an ancient textile craft that predates knitting. (Think Roman Empire and Viking Age times). It uses loops and knots to form the fabric. The fabric produced is thick and durable and it does not unravel. Nalbinding is great for hats, mittens and socks. I've seen it used to make sweaters, ponchos, and shawls too.
