The HILO machine is a compact spinning machine which can be installed in any textile workshop. It allows professionals and enthusiasts alike personalized, local and on-demand yarn production.
The HILO machine is controlled by the user-friendly HILO software. It allows users to translate digital patterns (such as an image) into different yarn properties which results in customized yarn with unique tactile and aesthetic qualities.
The Studio HILO project extends beyond the machine and software and aims towards building an active community of users. By making the blueprints and source-code freely available online, we invite users and maker to build their own HILO machine, code with us and share their experiences, improvements or customizations with the HILO community.
