Lawn Knitter

Making it easier to be green
  [vote for,

Nostalgic about the textile industry? Need a way to entertain yourself while mowing? Nowhere to empty your grassbox? Too cheap to buy clothes?

The Lawn Knitter Loom-O-Matic 3000 is a lawnmower with an elegant yarn spinning wheel on top. As you mow, the fibrous grass cuttings are collected, carded, drawn, spun, and then fed into a loom which promptly knits you an organic pullover.

Various expansion packs and accessories are available which can weave the grass into all kinds of clothing items inappropriate for a hot summer's day.

       Yikes, itchy. (+)
Woven grass paper would be wright on though.

       I thought this was going to knit my lawn whilst leaving the long grass in situ - sort of a living rush matting.

       [+] If you spin any type of plant fiber thin enough, you can make it into a soft fabric.

       [+] but can you spin 2" lengths of grass into fabric ?

       I would wager if they can do wool and wolf hair, they can do grass. Although I think I want carpets, not clothing.

       You could probably make mats that were suitable for mulching. Or panels for thatched roofs? I'm thinking rectangular sheet-like is the way to go.

       The cut grass mat could then be rolled up and disposed of, eliminating the need for bags. [+]
