The Terrot mini-jacquard model S3P-172 are among the most successful and top-selling models of the world. It operates according to the 3-way-technique at every feeder. It’s easy to knit patterns with this model.
A circular knitting machine has a machine cylinder (where the needles are bedded) witch rotates around feeding the yarn to the needles and thus produces tubular knitted fabric. The diameter of the cylinder varies according to the needs. This machine is owned by one of the few remaining knitting factories in Finland in Kangasala, Neuletuote Koivunen Oy. The factory is privately owned and there is only one employee.
