The photo archeology is of the Needlebind mitten Lödöse Sweden museum dated 1000-1200. There is also archaeology of two nalbinded mittens from Iceland, believed to date to the 10th century CE.
Mitten from Arneiðarstaðir, Fljótsdalhérad, east Iceland. Made from Nålebinding in Oslo stitch/Type IIa, the mitten was discovered in 1889 and described in 1895 by Pálmi Pálsson as being 26cm long, 12 cm wide, and dated 10th century.
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.
Striped fragments of a mitten from Eura early 1000 CE (southwest Finland)
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)
Fragments of two separate mittens from Tuukkala (East Finland), all from 1200 CE.

Whether I am driving a utility snowmobile (e.g., trail grooming; pulling a sled full of firewood); skidding cut logs with Log Grabbers; or stacking firewood by hand, these 100% wool Nalbinding mittens are moisture-wicking, warm, comfortable, durable, and practical. The knotted texture makes them snag-resistant. Now I understand why Nalbinding was extensively used by ancient people in their daily lives. Fast shipping, the mittens fit wonderfully, and Unna, a highly talented lady, was great to deal with. I highly recommend this shop!
