As the title «Chauffage Lainier» (Heating from Wool) implies, this object is a heating element, albeit an extremely unconventional one. The heating element used here is actually an electric blanket containing 20 meters of heating tube. A six-loop tube knit from cotton knitting yarn forms the covering for the heating tube extracted from the electric blanket. The blanket as such is not included, and consequently the restrictions of use imposed by the form of a blanket are removed. In return, the resulting ball of wool provides a host of possible new uses (scarf, cushion, etc.). In short, it offers up pliant heat for every wish.
