What is Conductive Thread?



  • Conductive thread is used to fabricate soft, flexible, and washable electronic circuits.
  • When tested with a multimeter conductive thread will display continuity and resistance.
  • For eTextile projects select a thread with a resistance as close to zero as possible.
  • Do not purchase conductive thread from a vendor that does not state the resistance in ohms/feet.
