About Conductive Thread/Fiber

Conductive thread can carry current the same way that wires can, which means it can be used to create a circuit. This allows the user to sew a circuit together, creating flexible circuits that require no soldering. In some textile-based projects, this is the most practical tool to maintain the hang of the fabric. Educationally, it’s a very safe and unintimidating way to learn how to use embedded electronics.

We have stainless steel threads, which are a little bit different. There is no traditional thread core; these threads are made entirely of stainless steel. They’re a little bit more difficult to sew with because they can be a bit ‘twisty’, but they make up for it with very reliable (and low) resistance. If you’ve got a project in mind that requires very long traces (more than a few feet), you’ll need low resistance. Currently, our lowest resistance threads are all stainless, so that’s where you’ll want to start. The lowest resistance threads are VERY thick, more like twine than thread, and can’t really be stitched. These are great to use in casings, piping, or stitched down with embroidery or a machine zig-zig stitch.


316L Stainless Steel Thread

With excellent conductivity, it’s more than ElectroStatic Discharge.

There are various types of steel threads to select.


You won’t need any special equipment to sew with conductive thread- regular needles, scissors, etc. will be fine. There are, however, a few things you need to know about the texture of the thread. The ends can fray easily. If you find yourself having trouble, beeswax can help. The thread is also entirely uninsulated. That means that it isn’t coated with a non-conductive material, and if two strands touch one another, they’ll conduct between them. When you design your project, you’ll have to try and prevent threads carrying individual signals from touching each other. If you need to cross traces, you’ll have to add an insulating layer.
