Review by

This is exactly what the title says - patterns for reconstructing Norse (specifically Greenland) garments. They go into the threads and weaves used as well so that if you want to start with spinning your own threads (from the right sort of sheep) on spindles and weave with a traditional vertical loom, you could do it, but they also have suggestions for making it easier on yourself. BTW My husband is not going along with the idea of us getting a few pet Icelandic sheep, even if they would mow the lawn for him.
