The idea behind Interknitting is to make human communication visible using wearable knitted interfaces. When we see and hear, when we read the body language of others or feel their touch, such interactions produce reactions in us. Interknitting can make reactions visible through the use of five different yarns, one of which responds to sound, another to movement, another to touch, while the other two can synchronize with one another whenever two wearers encounter one another. The status of their interaction is made visible by the LEDs embedded into the clothing. The collection is made of such natural materials as Merino or Kashmir wool, which are both sustainable and capable of protecting the sensitive sensors embedded in the garments.
