I thread into the needle of the knitting machine a metal thread or filament instead of traditional knitting yarn. As the metal thread has zero flexibility, the knitting machine makes the “metal textile” with difficulty. Due to being inflexible, the material can be made much slower than by using traditional knitting yarn. The iron machine’s knitting needles and the metal thread clash together while knitting. As a result of technology, the final outcome still becomes flexible. The textile can be stretched almost limitlessly, and the fibres still do not break.
