Friday Fun Fact!

Have you heard of nalbinding?

This ancient fiber craft is making a comeback in recent years. A method of yarn-working with a single needle, nalbinding predates knitting and crochet!

Evidence of mittens and socks made by nalbinding have dated back to 6500 BCE. The term nalbinding is Scandinavian, but this technique has been found in Peru, Israel, Egypt, and northern Europe.

The fabric is created by sewing a single strand of yarn through loops with a threaded needle. Various patterns are possible, including color patterns. 

You can find resources online to show you how nalbinding is done if you'd like to give it a try! Search nalbinding on youtube, or check local yarn shops.
