Width: approx 18 cm (7 inches)
Height: 12 cm (4.5 inches)

Reindeer leather is a precious commodity that is difficult to source. Most of the reindeer hides are used by the Saami people for their own clothing and personal use. I am only able to purchase the reindeer leather in small quantities that are sold as scrap leather. I stitch the small pieces together in order to make purses, pouches, reindeer bracelets and other items. Nothing is wasted. Each purse is unique and a combination of different coloured leathers depending on what I have on hand.
If you would like to order a custom made purse in a different size or colours, please ask. Custom orders take approximately 3-4 weeks to complete. I ask for a 50% Non-refundable deposit on all Custom orders. This pays for the material costs, should you change your mind.

Prices shown are in EURO. I purchase most of my supplies from European suppliers.
Items are shipping by Royal Mail International Tracked/Signed For. Please allow 7-10 days for international shipping.

Naalbinding Supplies

Nalbinding yarns, needles, patterns and kits can now be purchased directly through my Web Shop or visit PaivatarYarn on Etsy Shop: paivataryarn.etsy.com

Naalbinding Needles
Nalbinding needles can vary greatly in both size and style. Much like knitting needles, using the correct type of needle can make a difference in your finished work.
The size of the eye in the needle is important – a larger eye allows you to fit longer lengths of yarn into the eye. By accordion folding the yarn, you can use longer lengths. I often fold the yarn several times, so I am able to use lengths that are 5-10 meters in length. This speeds up the nalbinding considerably because I don’t have to join as many ends together, which can be time consuming.
The width or circumference of the needle can also make a difference. You can adjust the tension of the loops by tightening the loop around your thumb. If you have a large thumb then the loops will be looser. If you wish to make tight loops or are using a fine yarn, you can also adjust the tension by tightening the loop around the needle, similar to using different sizes of knitting needles.
Nalbinding needles can be long or short, and which one you use is personal preference – whatever length fits most comfortably in your hand.

Short Bone Naalbinding Needles
Each bone needle is individually made so the needles may vary slightly from what is shown in the photos. The bone naalbinding needle measures approx. 6 cm in length, is a bit narrower than some of the other nalbinding needles and has a smaller eye.
This style of needle would be suitable for working with thinner and lighter weight yarns such as 4 ply and sock wool. If using a thicker yarn such as a DK weight, the eye of the needle will fit about 2 strands of yarn.
The bone needle is very smooth, well sanded and comfortable to work with.

Naalbinding Neede Cases
This is a hand carved naalbinding needle case. The bone needle holder is a hollow tube with a brass ring that can be tied to a belt or a cian.
Traditionally the ends of these cases were stuffed with a bit of wool to hold the needles in place. A bit of wool is included with the nalbinding needle holder.
The needle case measures approx. 8 cm (3 inches) and will fit the Small size Bone Nalbinding needles.
Of course, the needle cases are lovely for storing other types of sewing, or embroidery needles too.

Band Weaving Yarns
I have had a bit of a difficult time trying to source yarns that are suitable for Sami style band weaving. So I decided to dye some of my own. The yarn is sourced locally in the UK and is spun from British Blue Faced Leicester wool which has a long staple and a natural sheen to the yarn.

Tablet Weaving Card Sets

I have designed some new tablet weaving cards that are made of durable plastic, because I didn’t like to use the matt board ones. I found that they tended to wear out rather quickly.
I designed these cards to be made of plastic so that they would be able to withstand the friction that is placed on the tablets during weaving. The edges are smooth and the cards turn easily.
The plastic tablets are not mass produced. but are made locally by skilled craftsmen.

The Paivatar tablet cards come in 4 colours: Red, Yellow, Blue and Green

One face of the card has a logo, the other side is blank. The multiple colours allow you to use different colours if you are turning groups of cards in different directions. The cards are not numbered, but you can easily write numbers or letters on them with a permanent marker to help you keep track while weaving. Be sure to let the ink dry before using the tablets.

The cards are slightly smaller than the standard tablet weaving cards that are on the market (60 mm square) Because the cards are thin and slightly smaller in size than other tablet weaving cards, I find it easy to hold several in my hand – and I have fairly small hands. The thinner size is also better when working with fine yarns as it allows the warp yarns to be sett closer together, much as in weaving with a fine dent reed.

The holes in the cards are also slightly smaller than the standard cards. This helps to keep the warp threads in alignment while weaving, as there is less play in the warp.

You may now purchase the Paivatar Tablet weaving cards and other weaving supplies directly from my Web Shop or visit my PaivatarYarn Shop on Etsy.
