Pedal Powered Un-Knitting Machine

Pedal powered un-knitting machine

“A highly unusual bicycle, designed to help recycle unwanted woollen
clothes, unravels any clothing item back into its pre-knitted form. It has been selected as one of the best student design projects of
2012 by the British National Centre for Craft and Design.”

“The un-knitting machine is based on pedal power and built around an old
bicycle frame. The un-knitter sits on a chair pedalling and wool passes
through steam coming out of a kettle before being collected on a
spindle. The machine was designed by Imogen Hedges, a student at Kingston University.” Read more. Via Treehugger.
