Exciting news for your nalbinding (and other research) references collection. You can now download a copy of Ancient Danish Textiles from Bogs and Burials! The Centre for Textile Research in Copenhagen is digitizing Margrethe Hald’s Archive and has recently uploaded a copy of Ancient Danish Textiles from Bogs and Burials (currently 3rd from the bottom of the list) along with digitized copies of many of Hald’s other articles.
I’ve also been making updates to my Annotated Bibliography & Other Sources page at: https://nalbound.com/annotated-bibliography/ While there are still sources in my collection to be added, I’ve been able to add another lump covering some recent acquisitions regarding sources with information on Sub-Saharan African and Southeast Asian nalbinding. As is often the case, the usefulness varies greatly. Some of them have very limited information on nalbinding, tending to concentrate on woven textiles more than non-woven looped fabrics. Others include clear photos and diagrams including technique as well as structure.

Thank you for the links. I I find this interesting, although it is just a hobby of mine. Have you ever done a post on your nalbound socks?
I’m glad to be able to provide interesting content and love to hear that others find it interesting. Thank you.
I have not yet posted specifically about socks I have personally nalbound. My old site did have images of pieces that I had made, but I have yet to add any to this site. I do post pictures of my projects on various social media sites.
