Conductive thread is a creative way to connect various electronics onto clothing. This thread can carry current for power and signals. While not as conductive as traces on a printed circuit board (PCB), this thread makes wearable clothing ‘wearable’!
This thread is stainless steel making it extremely tarnish resistant. This thicker 6-ply thread gives it the ability to conduct much more power. It is often laid on a fabric and then held in place with a over-stitch (sometimes called a couching stitch) of non-conductive machine sewable thread.
What can you do with more power? Keep your hands warm! This thread has been used in gloves, vests, and clothing as a heater coil.
The extra thick thread has an extremely low resistance of about 1.4 Ohms per linear foot and weighs about 0.93 ounces for the full 50 feet.
