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.

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!
