series of mittens based on Heidi Fossnes' book "Håndplagg til bunad og folkedrakter". Originally, this embroidery was sewn on a pair of black mittens that was found in Heidal, in Nord-Gubrandsdalen. The original pair came to museum in 1911, so they are probably from the last half of the 1900th century. You can find a picture of a reproduction of the original pair of mittens here.
Falk from Dale. The pattern for the fingerless mittens is originally from another pattern in the book, and comes from Valle in Setesdal. The embroidery is done with a fine wool thread from Appelton. I doubled the thread to give the pattern more fullness.
