“Life on Mars: Are knitted space suits the future?” on Innovation in Textiles:

Fabdesigns says it has developed breakthrough protective space-wear that provides radiation protection for astronauts with a high-degree of flexibility and additional fire-resistance. The dangerous levels of radiation that astronauts are exposed to beyond Earth orbit remains a significant health challenge for deeper exploration of the Solar System, the company says. Fabdesigns has created its highly technical fabrications using industrial flat knitting machinery typically used for making sweaters.

“With the ability to produce ’things’, comes equally great responsibility to human health and the environment to manufacture with minimal impact on the environment,” Bruce Huffa, Fabdesigns executive engineer states.
