have been designed. The collection is named “Touching Loops” and is the result of an exploration in interactive tactile properties for knitted textiles. As a first experiment, different yarns were tried out for their ability to change structure due to heat in several knitted constructions. The experiment resulted in three different material prototypes with the ability to sense touch and react by shrinking, breaking or hardening. The aim of the project is to explore new possibilities for interactive tactile knitted materials and structures. In the discussion we relate to these textile structures as possible materials in the context of architecture.
