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!

Sew a couple inches into the pad of your gloves to keep your hands toasty while you use your iPhone, iPad or any other device with a 'capacitive' touch screen. Because capacitive sensors sense your finger through conductivity, not pressure, they don't work when you wear your gloves - they act as insulators. Just follow Becky Stern's awesome tutorial and in 10 minutes flat you will have upgraded winter wear

  1. Review by ray - problem solver conductive yarn verified purchaser

    The Stainless Thin Conductive Yarn allowed me to tackle a problem that had bugged me for years. I wanted to construct a touch-sensitive miniature switch without the use of semiconductors. The switch had to be lowest cost, of minimal easy-to-get parts, lightweight, noiseless, 100% reliable and durable. Thanks to Core Electronics, now the problem is solved. This is a high quality product, along with good packaging and prompt delivery. (Posted on 26/01/2014)
