I'm attracted to the stranger medieval things. Like fabric mittens instead of knitted, naalbinded or leather ones. So, I'm trying to find any information about this other than a brief mention in Halds' Ancient Danish Textiles from Bogs and Burials in the naalbinding section, pg.304.

I also want to make the gloves from Moshchevaya Balka, but I want more information on that too. Ah, what is an insane costumer to do?

And, hopefully try some more complex naalbinding stitches, with the Kekomäki stockings (or mittens... nobody seems to know the position of the grave find, and the stocking idea is based on ethnology. Satu Hovi says that from talking to archaeologists that it's a mitten since it was found at the waist, see the section on the Kaukola mitten.)
