Nålbindning Needle

Set of Nålbindning needles. Set of Nålbindning needles. TRC collection.

A nålbindning needle is a bodkin-like needle used to make a complicated, looped material called nålbindning. A nålbindning needle is normally flat, between 5 and 10 cm in length, with a rounded eye at one end. The other end is normally slightly pointed, but blunt.

These needles can be made from a variety of materials, such as antler, bone, metal and wood. By the end of the twentieth century, plastic versions were also being produced.
