'pedal powered un-knitting machine' by imogen hedges
built around an old bicycle frame, london-based designer imogen hedges has developed a 'pedal powered un-knitting machine',
that unravels unwanted sweaters into wool. through the use of a series of components, the contraption reclaims the yarn, where at
the same time, straightens kinks by passing it through the stream of a kettle. after the garment has been fully disassembled, the by-product
is then rewound into a ball by using a hand-cranked spindle.
