After months of searching, we finally have what we consider to be the ultimate conductive thread. 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!
You won't want to miss the opportunity to incorporate a fun-filled, ART and Science crossover project with our new Wearable Tech line! This thread is the main component necessary for engineering sewable circuits into DIY arts, crafts and fashion tech projects - from LED light up scarfs and leggings to pressure sensors for wearables. Add more buttons, beads and flare to your liking!
This thread is 2 ply, a little thicker than every day polyester or cotton thread but still thin enough to be sewn by hand in medium-eye needles or with a sewing machine that can handle 'heavy' thread. Because it is strong and smooth, its ideal for any wearable/e-textile project. It also has fairly low resistivity, 16 ohms per foot so you can use it to drive LEDs and other electronic components that use under ~50mA. This thread comes in rolls of 30 ft lengths.
