I tried my hand a nalbinding, the viking form of “knitting”. My first attempt was a fail. The wool was too fine for my skill level and it was too “holey”. My second attempt was better in terms of the holes but the technique uses several shorter lengths of wool that you attach as you run short. The knots were too bulky for my tastes.
I’ll use it as a bag to hold my hair ribbons but other than that, I am not thrilled.
If ever I get the desire to try it again, I will use the same thickness of wool but I won’t use a cotton again. It isn’t fuzzy enough for the technique of rubbing the two ends together to form a joint solid enough to hold two lengths together. I ended up having to tie the ends and that is not the correct method in nalbinding and it made it far to lumpy.
