Nalbinding is a created by using a single bone needle.
Also known in English as “knotless netting,single needle knitting.”

The technique is distinct from crochet in that it involves passing the full length of the working thread through each loop.

It also differs from knitting in that lengths must be pieced together during the process of nålebinding, rather than a continuous strand of yarn that can easily be pulled out.
Nålbinding will not unravel even when cut.

The unique stitching created a lovely chunky ribbed effect inside, which is insulating. The wool has a natural ability to be multi-climatic. Plus it is Ecofriendly and contains no Plastic..
