Our twenty-first advent calendar post is a once again a textile tool. A small lucet made in bone. It’s a find from the city of Sigtuna, the first city of Sweden.
It’s dated 11th-13th century
Now in collections of Historiska museet, Sweden.

Hello Maria, this is one of the items I would like to make for the Swedish Medieval markets, could you please send me some measurements of it and the type of bone? It is probably sheep. Thank you very much, Monica Tielens from Bikkel and Been, the Netherlands.
Hi! We will try to measure it.
