Today I share an old film showing Norwegian crafts. There is weaving, spinning, and other historic crafts you don’t often see in films such as fingerloop braiding and naalbinding.
Of interest is the spinnin technique uses a hook in place of a distaff. It also shows the plying technique which Norman Kennedy speaks about, where the yarn is run through a hook in the ceiling.
The finger loop braiding was very interesting. Would love to try it sometime.
Wow, just spent a very pleasant 11:17 minutes watching this film, it was fascinating! Thank you for sharing this, it is really neat to see crafts that I am doing now, being done then. I enjoyed this very much.
