Nalbinding is a knitting technique which is popular in historical re-enacting groups today. Even though several needles used for nalbinding have been found, we have only been able to unearth a handful of actual clothing items which was made using nalbinding. A sock, a mitten and a unique pennant-shaped item includes everything we have found from the Viking Age. However, a few mittens, socks and hats dated to the Middle Ages have been discovered. Even during pre-historical and historical eras, one could assume that nalbinding was used for larger garments such as coats or shawls as well, until it was replaced by modern-day knitting.
