The science behind cut resistant gloves. Not only is the content and strength of the yarn important, but the structure of the yarn (a three-ply) is as well. All together these factors combine for a cut-resistant yarn. Please don’t expect this (yet) from the yarns you can find at your LYS.



Designtex is making the creations of the Bauhaus weaving workshop commercially available. Works by both Gunta Stölzl and Anni Albers are featured in this Bauhaus Project.



This resin ring by Isabell Kiefhaber is amazing.

    Interesting on the science of cut resistance. After almost cutting off a finger with a rotary blade, I almost never cut without my cut-resistant gloves. They’re a lifesaver!
