Yule Gifts for Viking Reenactors | Skjoldehamn Socks

Video link: https://youtu.be/k-k9Rc08AYI

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.
