Kawashima Knit Museum


"Knitting Machines and Needles"

Visit this small museum if you want to learn about knitting production. Specifically the bobbin knitting method is featured here. Other exhibits include both old and new items such as linking machines and a variety of different needles. Although Paris and Florence had established knitting guilds by the end of the middle ages, it wasn't until 1589 that the frame knitting machine with its spring needle was invented. The more common latch needle mechanism was introduced in 1847.
