Nålbinding is a textile technique that uses a single, eyed, needle to create fabric by sewing non-continuous lengths of thread in a fashion that in its most basic form is a series of buttonhole stitches and in more complex forms are threaded together.
In Nålbinding, the thread is not pulled tight against itself forming a hard knot, but the stitches are
tensioned, often around a thumb or needle, leaving a mesh-work of interlocking loops of thread. Except in those forms that look like crossed knitting, it does not unravel like knitting or crochet as the thread is drawn entirely through each stitch.
The resulting fabric is generally built spiraling up row by row and can be very elastic or quite stiff depending on the variation and material used.
Nålbinding can be used to make a number of different items. Most often used for mittens, socks, hats, milk strainers, and bags, it can, however, be used to make many different objects. Unfortunately many archaeological nålbinding finds are just fragments so their original use is often obscured if not unknown."

Great service. The needle came with a couple of tea bags, a sweet and a section of nalbinding already with the needle. The ends of the needle were slightly too square and there were grit marks on the needle. It needed a little more filing to shape the ends and should have been sanded through the grits, before being polished. The needles in the seller’s photographs look like they usually get this treatment but I had to do it for myself.
