Adaptive survival clothing.
Adaptive Survival Clothing
Textile project by Jacqueline Nanne makes woollen fabric adaptable to different temperatures (thanks to sensitive memory wire) - video embedded below:Using the great temperature and moisture regulation properties of wool and our own body as inspiration, fabrics were desiged that adapt to the temperature of the human body and the environment. The focus lies on the context of survival, as clothing plays a big role in staying alive in the wilderness. When on survival, one often adds or removes layers of clothing to keep a comfortable temperature. This design is intended to decrease the number of times one has to stop to change clothing, and keep comfortable when for instance taking a break or when ascending a mountain.
That’s what I would call sexy knitting dance :D
Dun du-dun! More crochetyknitter travels :)
I had A BLAST finally visiting the Yarnover Truck in SoCal!!! Celebrating their first birthday in Burbank with a giant park party, the Yarnover Truck hosted an Anzula Trunk Show alongside oodles of cupcakes, yarn, and happy knitters last weekend. (More on the Anzula in another post)
How can I capture the awesomeness that is the Yarnover Truck in words? I really can’t. This mobile lys would be great just as an unrealized concept. Add the amazing selection of yarn stuffed into the truck and some super enthusiastic and friendly owners, and—voilà!—it’s magical. Since it was their birthday, the Yarnover ladies were insanely generous with gift bags AND door prizes. I’ll do a separate post of my haul.
I’m not really one for public knitting, but it was so delightful to sit around in the park with fellow SoCal needlecrafters and swap yarn stories. Let’s just hope I’m invited to the next birthday!
Happy birthday, Yarnover Truck! <3
