Sprang by Comb and War Shirt

Interesting links

Sprang technique by means of comb
Anita Rašmane, 2006

I also found the "war shirt" article very interesting. It looks like a finger
knitted coat, no loom and no knitting needles.

I used Google Translate to convert from Latvian language.
Have a good day!

Wow! I am so glad that you are interested in Latvian national crafts. I even didn't know about war shirts but I can advice another page about Latvian national ornaments and clothes, just follow the links on the top:

Thanx for the link. Sprang on a comb is fascinating. Tho I wonder how springy it's likely to be without being under tension.
