These eco-friendly bamboo needles are perfect for:
- Nalbinding (also called nålbinding or naalbinding)
Nalbinding is a Viking knitting technique. In fact it’s so old that it might have even been used by stone age people. It involves taking short pieces of yarn left over from weaving, and combining them into small, useful items like mittens, hats, socks, nets, sieves, and bags. When you knit like the Vikings, you use a single needle to pull the yarn through previous stitches. This makes thick, durable, warm goods with an important bonus – they don’t unravel the way knitted goods do!
After you’ve tied your bundles of broom fiber together, you might want to stitch your home-made broom to make it flat. These wide, easy-to-hold bamboo needles, with large eyes, are perfect for this task. Use your choice of the colorful threads we offer here at the Craftsteading Online Store.
You can also use these flat bamboo needles as shuttles in small weaving looms.
