Item details

Material

maple

a double-ended needle for nalbinding, a very old and obscure technique for making cloth. May be of interest to people who do folk crafts, especially Scandinavian ones, or who do historical re-enactment with groups like the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA).

I had this nalbinding needle made to my specifications, modeled on the dimensions of a favorite needle I had on hand that I bought from a major spindle maker. Maple wood from Vancouver Island, Canada. Measures about six inches long.

Stock photo - wood grain will vary. The surface may have small flaws, especially around the hole. Thickness is irregular.

The nålbound sock shown is the work of local fiber artist Maggie Allen-Pruett.

    This was a horrible mistake. When this arrived in the mail, I didn't want to do anything else! I had all of the roving spun by the next day. And I've ordered more to spin. It's an addiction, but one I'll gladly feed. Thank you so much for the small kit to learn on. The spindle is smooth and works great. It isn't too heavy or awkward.

    Perfect and super fast shipping! First time spinner but found the wool to be easy to work with but still learning. Came exactly as described

    A wonderful little set! I wish there was a notch in the spindle but that's just because I am a beginner and not great at spinning yet!

    I love this! It's such a great way for a beginner like me to try out a bunch of different fibers without shelling out a ton of cash. I learned a lot and have a much better idea of what to look for in the future!
