A thread with high conductive properties is what you need to complete the circuit on your electronic wearable clothing.
It's thin, strong, smooth, and made completely of 316L stainless steel. Once you start working with this thread you'll quickly agree its optimal for any wearables work!
Thinnest conductive thread on our collection. It's thin, strong, smooth, and made completely of 316L stainless steel. Once you start working with this thread you'll quickly agree its optimal for any wearables work!
This 316L stainless steel thread falls somewhere between a thick thread and a thin yarn. Most sewing machines wouldn't be happy with this thread since its thick, and it has the 'furry' soft feel of yarn which makes it poor for most e-textiles/wearables projects. However, the high conductivity and softness make it a great thread for making iPhone gloves!
This conductive fiber is super interesting! It's great for felting and could also be spun into yarn if that's your thing. We tested many different fiber thicknesses for needle felting and found that this one (20um fiber thickness) is the most pleasurable to work with.
Measuring stretch forces isn't easy - unless you have some conductive rubber cord! This cord is 2mm diameter, and 1 meter long, made of carbon-black impregnated rubber. Usually this material is used for EMF gasketing, but its also very fun to play with.
This conductive ribbon is a great way to wire your e-textile projects without running hundreds of stitches all over the place! There are 4 insulated silver coated conductors in this flexible, polyester fabric ribbon. The conductors can’t be soldered to, but we do carry crimp-on connectors that you can use to terminate the ribbon cable with pin-headers. Check out the related items below for connectors.
This is about 360 yards of conductive thread spun from stainless steel fiber and wound on a spool.
This is 30 feet of conductive thread spun from stainless steel fiber and wound on a plastic bobbin. Use it to sew up all of your e-textile projects.
