Hut 2 floor 1 has a needlecase of hollow bird bone with paired peripheral lines at its middle and ends (second from the bottom, left). A similarly decorated bird bone drinking tube was also found, along with gull-winged thimble-holders (top left).
Needles were also used to sew the birchbark into baskets, some fragments that were found at Nadlok are shown below (right side).
