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 thread is a 2-ply thread and may be small enough to be compatible with some sewing machines.
This thread has a resistance of about 9 Ohms per linear foot and weighs about 0.20 ounces for the full 50 feet.
Whether it's for assembling a kit, hacking an enclosure, or creating your own parts; the DIY skill is all about knowing how to use tools and the techniques associated with them.

This thread works very well for the purpose of creating texting gloves. The only annoying thing is that the thickness of the thread makes threading the needle difficult for this experienced sew-er.
