This is 30 feet of conductive thread spun from stainless steel fibre and wound on a plastic bobbin. Use it to sew up all of your e-textile projects. This small bobbin is a great way to get into wearable electronics without the upfront cost of buying an entire spool of thread. 30 feet of thread is enough to get a simple design stitched onto your shirt, backpack or hat.
What sets this thread apart from the other conductive thread that we carry is the fact that it’s actually spun from this stainless steel fibre and doesn’t have a nylon core. This means that while it may not be easy to solder to, because it’s stainless, it also won’t burn up when you touch it with a soldering iron. Suitable for hand or machine sewing (as a bobbin thread), it’s particularly ‘toothy’, which means that it grabs tight to your fabric- if you’ve had problems with slippery conductive thread that won’t lay flat or knot, this thread will be a welcome relief. We’ve had no trouble using it for close, tight connections, but if you’re worried, waxing the thread should keep it manageable!
