Nalbinding Yarns

Nalbinding is an ancient textile technique that pre-dates knitting. Nalbinding knots are sewn using a large wooden or bone needle by forming interconnecting loops around your thumb.

I hand spin my naalbinding wool yarns in the opposite direction to conventional yarns. First the yarn is spun to the left, and then plied to the right, creating a Z twist yarn. I find this method of hand spinning creates a yarn that is better suited for nalbinding work.

Nalbinding (just like knitting or crochet) can be used to make mittens, hats, slippers, socks, jumpers, bags and other textile items.
