About

Nidavellnir is the UK's leading Historical Nalbinding Specialist.

Now with nalbound items and Nalbinding for Beginners resources available on Etsy.

Nidavellnir specialises in the Single Danish stitch called 'languette' as well as the York Stitch; which creates a fine and durable textile. Teaching this heritage craft from the archaeological examples is Nidavellnir's main focus.

Nidavellnir handcrafts all nalbound items you see in the online shop and sources wool from local farmers to make your Historical hats, socks and gloves. All items are hand crafted out of pure wool; from Icelandic, Shetland and British Rare breed wool. Custom orders welcome.

Run by Viking-Age Archaeologist Emma 'Bruni' Boast MA, Nidavellnir can now provide virtual workshops and digital resources to learn this ancient craft.

Nidavellnir is a member of the HCA-UK as well as Exarc, an international body for the protection of heritage reconstruction and interpretation. Nidavellnir has made nalbound items for museum displays, educational resources, re-enactment communities and the TV/Film Industry. From the British Museum to Roskilda Ship Museum.

Nidavellnir launched the first Nalbinding for Beginners Book and Starter Kit in February 2018, to promote, teach and safeguard this heritage craft. In March 2019, Nidavellnir was instrumental in getting Nalbinding listed as an Endangered Heritage Craft, as there are very few skilled professionals teaching this craft professional as a full-time job.

Nidavellnir's aim is to safeguard this craft by developing teaching materials to bring awareness of this craft to more people. As well as attending any wool craft and heritage shows, teaching, demonstrating and encouraging people to start learning this ancient craft for Historical or Modern purposes.

Nidavellnir is owned by Viking-Age Archaeologist and Heritage Specialist Emma 'Bruni' Boast MA. A Published author and active heritage professional, with over 15+years experience in Viking heritage/archaeological education and engagement.

In March 2020, Nidavellnir joined the UK Guild of Master Craftsmen UK.
