In reenactment spaces (at least the ones I frequent) it is said that money is the least fun way you can repay someone. So these Skjoldehamn-inspired socks are a winter solstice gift for a friend who very kindly made me a pair of shoes. I hope they fit and will keep my friend warm. 🙂
Want to learn more about Sami and the Skjoldehamn find’s relation to local costume traditions? I have a video about that.
