The Wind Knitting Factory

March 8, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Reminiscent of Siren Elise Wilhelmsen’s knitting clock, London-based Merel Karhof has developed a fully functional windmill capable of knitting.

With the power of the wind, a knitting machine knits from the outside towards the inside of a building. The knitted material is harvested from time to time and rounded-off in individually packaged scarves. Each scarf has its own label which tells you in how much time it has been knitted and on which date.
