The photo archeology is of the Needlebind mitten Lödöse Sweden museum dated 1000-1200. There is also archaeology of two nalbinded mittens from Iceland, believed to date to the 10th century CE.
Mitten from Arneiðarstaðir, Fljótsdalhérad, east Iceland. Made from Nålebinding in Oslo stitch/Type IIa, the mitten was discovered in 1889 and described in 1895 by Pálmi Pálsson as being 26cm long, 12 cm wide, and dated 10th century.
Called Nålbindning in the native Swedish it is also known in English as nalbinding, nalebinding, nalbindning, naalbinding, nailbinding, naalebinding or needle binding
Nalbinding is an ancient technique used to produce hats, socks, mittens and other woolen goods using a single short needle and lengths of woolen yarn
