Spun from stainless steel fibers and nylon this conductive thread is the perfect solution to all your e-textile needs. This is great as it acts like thread, not like a wire!
We like this particular thread for several reasons. First, it's thin and easy to sew with. Second, it's strong. Really strong. As in machine washable strong. Lastly, it only has a resistance of between 10-20 ohm per foot which makes it excellent for both large and small projects.
Our pre-wound plastic bobbins each come with 16.4 feet (5 meters) of conductive thread. Most projects only need 1 to 3 feet of thread, such as our bracelet project, which uses 3 feet of thread each.
