Both wind-power and knitting are pretty popular with the young, green and fabulous these days, and so we think this product comprises a “perfect storm” of sorts: the scarf knitted by the wind, which comes to us by way of IGreenSpot.
The brainchild of product designer Merel Karhof, the Wind Knitting Factory is an ingenious contraption that attaches to the outside of a building. Just feed it yarn and it creates an endless skein of scarf, which can be cut from time to time and sewn off into individual scarves. Each scarf comes with its own label telling you exactly how long your scarf took to be knitted and on what date.
While there doesn’t appear to be anywhere you can score one of these scarves just yet, we’re confident that some hot eco-teurre label will decide to make use of the Wind Knitting Factory in short order. At which time, you’ll be able to tell all your friends, the scarf you use to protect yourself from the wind was literally knitted by it.
