Most surviving European nålbinded clothing dates from the Viking and early medieval era, (9th- 12th century) and are concentrated in the Scandinavian countries. However one example does come from Viking York.
The course :
If you have already mastered the Oslo stitch you may want to move ahead...
Learn more and new naalbinding stitches, e.g. York, Dalarna, Asle, Finnish....
