COMEZ crochet machine


There is a question that I have noticed coming up in hæklede cirkler from time to time. It’s the question of whether or not a machine can make crochet. Svaret er, at selv om der er sådan en ting som en hæklet maskine, there is not a machine that can replicate håndlavet hæklet as you and I know it.

There is such a thing as a crochet machine. The most well-known example are the crochet machines that are crafted by COMEZ, a manufacturer that also produces other types of needlework machines such as weaving needle looms. These machines are produced on a large scale for the textile industry. I first learned about these machines earlier this year when Textile World announced that the founder of the company had passed away at the age of 86.

The crochet machines created by COMEZ are also known aswarp knitting machines”. They have multiple needles that each correspond to a specific thread and they work together to create a crochet-like fabric that is said to be highlydrape-able”. Men, as anyone who crochets knows, there are no needles in crochet work (except for the ones used to weave in ends!) and therefore this really isn’t anything like true handmade crochet.

To date, there are no machines that can replicate the type of crochet that we do by hand. This makes crochet unique. There are knitting machines that can make knit items on a large scale to be sold in stores. The same is not true of crochet. If you see crochet in a store then you should know that the item was made by hand by someone in the world. It wasn’t made by a machine.

I am so glad to hear this. I've recently been diagnosed with neuropathy and it's in my hands. Og, I am still trying to crochet. I just want anyone I know who I give a gift of crochet work to that it took a lot of work and love. Og, that it's not easy for me to do anymore.

  5. [...] Samantha Wilson er meget interesseret i at sikre, at hendes virksomhed er venlig mod jorden. Først og fremmest, hun upcycling gamle møbler, som ellers ville gå til en losseplads eller få ødelagt, så hendes arbejde sparer at brugte materiale og bringer nyt liv til det. Ud over dette, hun gør sikker på, at hun kilder eneste britiske uld, støtte den lokale uld industrien og også reducere carbon footprint, der kan tilflyde når garn leveres over hele verden. Endelig, she dyed that wool herself so that she could get the exact colors that she wanted while keeping the dye process as minimal as possible. Kunstneren påpeger også, at da hun gør sin crafting i hånden er der ingen brug af el-spiser maskiner – all of us crocheters are green that way since there’s no such thing as a crochet machine! [...]
