Called Nålbindning in the native Swedish it is also known in English as nalbinding, nalebinding, nalbindning, naalbinding, nailbinding, naalebinding or needle binding
Nalbinding is an ancient technique used to produce hats, socks, mittens and other woolen goods using a single short needle and lengths of woolen yarn
The oldest nalbound fragments found in Finland are approximately from 1000 CE.

Fragments from Masku and Köyliö 1050 CE (southwest Finland), and a striped fragment of a mitten in Kekomäki in Kaukola (Ceded Carelia; the area nowadays belongs to Russia)

These 100% wool Nalbinding fingerless mittens fit me great, and they are warm and comfortable while I research and draft in an unheated/ very limited heat office. Wearing a combination of fur knee-high socks; multiple layers of 100% wool, linen, and cotton dresses and sweaters; and these Nalbinding mittens helps me maintain good penmanship while writing and waiting a long time for an “energy efficient” pellet stove to heat up my office space. While a planned obsolescence, UN-approved/ UL-Listed “energy efficient” electric stove (and other electronic devices) breaks down during a power outage, or even a grid-down scenario, these durable, 100% wool Nalbinding mittens enable me to continue taking care of family matters, despite the temperature changes. Fast shipping, high-quality, durable mittens, and Unna was great to work with.
