The Ancient Viking Craft - A New Heritage Skill of Nalbinding

It's January 2022. I'm exhausted are You exhausted? Phew what a Year and the Challenges just keep coming hey! 😄
Like many, Nidavellnir spent allot of 2021 just trying to keep a roof over my head. I learnt to adapt really quickly to the daily changing circumstances, as we all did. Here's just some of the things that happened:

****COVID-19 continues.....
🧶January 2021- Recovering from major reconstructive ankle surgery 💪
🧶Febuary 2021- Jorvik Viking Festival trading cancelled. 😔
🧶March 2021- Wrote a Nalbinding Book Review for Exarc, on the newly released 'Nalbinding:With one Needle' by Mervi Pasanen.✍
🧶April 2021- Joined the social Enterprise Shop 'Fabrication Crafts' on Coney Street for 7months. Ran Nalbinding Workshops there, promoted Nalbinding to the Public. Sadly, left in October 2021, due to a difference of professional opinion.
🧶November 2021- Made friends with the Shambles Market Team in York. Wonderfully kind Management and Traders. Just not the right setting for my handmade items, sadly.
🧶December 2021- Created some unique Feative items especially for Christmas, as I pivoted back to Etsy.🎅🏻

🧶🪡 I'm a professional Heritage Crafter seeking to make living out of this fascinating ancient craft. I teach, create items for the reenactment communities, as well as conducting research and writing articles to further safeguard this Endangered Heritage Craft in the UK.

Over the Years, Nidavellnir has made:
🐑Nalbound hats, socks, gloves and Viking-Age costume for reenactment events and film/tv productions. Nidavellnir was involved as a historical advisor in the CBBC 'Gudrun the Viking Princess' Series in 2018.
🐑 I've nalbound items for the British Museum, Jorvik Viking Centre, the Viking Ship Museum in Roskilda, Denmark.
🐑 I'm constantly nalbinding unique hats, socks and gloves for birthday presents, Christmas gifts and special commissions for everyday wonderful people as well. So Thank You for stopping by!

Nidavellnir is run by me Emma 'Bruni' Boast, a Viking-Age Archaeologist and Heritage Craft Specialist based in York,UK.
I handcraft 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 proudly a member of:
🧶 The Heritage Craft Association UK.
🧶Finds Research Group UK.
🧶EXARC International.
🧶 The Guild of MasterCraftsmen UK.
🧶Rare Breed Survival Trust UK.

After 4years on with the 'Nalbinding for Beginners' Book and Starter Kit, Nidavellnir has introduced over 800+ new people to Nalbinding as a heritage craft around the world, which is phenomenal! 🎉🥳🎉

📚As of the 9th March 2019, Nalbinding was 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. In October, 2021, I resubmitted an up-to-date entry for the listing to add more data to the cause, including more research and sources.📚

💜I really want to say a massive thank you to everyone who has supported Nidavellnir, through the past 2years.🙏🏻 I've managed to fight on up to this point, but I'm a little worn thin, "like butter spread over too much bread" 🍞

So I'm hopeful for the Future but I need Your Support to Help keep me going! Please considering donating to the Gofundme page. Let's try and rebuild as best we can hey! 💪💜

Take Care All,
- Bruni

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.

Sizing details

If you would like more information on an items dimensions or appropriate sizing, please feel free to contact Nidavellnir

Custom and personalised orders

All customs orders are non-refundable due to the nature of these types of orders and the time invested to create such items. This falls within the Consumer Rights Policy as well as Government Legislation.
Any threatening or harassing behaviour regarding custom orders and refunds will be reported to the relevant authorities as well at Etsy.

Nidavellnir ships all over the world and will dispatch your parcel 1st class tracked for security and piece of mind.

Due to postal services varying across the world Nidavellnir cannot be held responsible for damaged goods once they leave the UK.

Etsy is unable to hold sellers responsible for orders that were damaged by the shipping service.
