The Ancient Viking Craft - A New Heritage Skill of Nalbinding

It's March 2020. Nidavellnir has been open as a historical craft shop for nearly 7 years now! Wow! Where has the time gone!

In that time Nidavellnir has created nalboud items and viking age costume for reenactment, film/tv as well as well known heritage centres. I've Nalbound items for the British Museum, the Jorvik Viking Centre, the Viking Ship Museum in Roskilda, Denmark and recently acted as a historical consultant for the CBBC's Gudrun the Viking Princess series.

Most importantly I've made some wonderful custom items for all you brilliant people too!

Nidavellnir is run by me Emma 'Bruni' Boast, a Viking-Age Archaeologist based in York. I create and design all the items you see in my shop. I have a passion for recreating historical items based on historical techniques from the Viking Age and my aim is to educate and inspire people to try and keep these crafts and skills alive. Nidavellnir is also proudly a member of the Heritage Craft Association (UK) and has also recently joined EXARC (International) as well as become part of The Guild of MasterCraftsmen with my Nalbinding in the UK!

Nidavellnir has traded at the Jorvik Viking Festival in York for the past 7 years and things have been going fantastic. There are more craft and heritage shows booked for this year, including new craft shows in York, UK!

A year on a with the Nalbinding for Beginners Book and Kit, and Nidavellnir has introduced and sold over 500+ new people to Nalbinding as a heritage craft which is phenomenal!

As of the 9th March 2019, Nalbinding is also listed as an Endangered Heritage Craft with the Heritage Craft Association Uk. The research and proposal for this listing was submitted by Nidavellnir and I am very pleased that I have been able to secure this craft for the future.

I'm going to be writing more articles this year, using more hand dyed yarns and telling more people about the wonderful craft of Nalbinding!

I really want to thank everyone for all the kind and positive comments and reviews about Nidavellnir.

Thank you for your continued support, onwards and upwards!

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

I would recommend hand washing all nalbinded items, as they are 100% wool. Cold to tepid water is fine, but do not adjitate the wool whilst washing as it will start to felt.
