NEW PRODUCT – Stainless Thin Conductive Yarn / Thick Conductive Thread – 35 ft

Window-45

NEW PRODUCT – Stainless Thin Conductive Yarn / Thick Conductive Thread – 35 ft. 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!

Measures 0.4mm thick, 3 ply thread, 1.0 ohm per inch

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 Sterns awesome tutorial and in 10 minutes flat you will have upgraded winter wear.

Need something else? We will have sewing machine/e-textiles friendly thread in the shop soon, so if you want thread for those purposes, hold tight!


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
