NEW PRODUCTS! Conductive Fabric in Knit and Woven!
NEW PRODUCT! Knit Conductive Fabric – Silver 20cm square – This knit conductive fabric is all silver and super luxe! Use small pieces on the tips of gloves or in any soft circuit situation where you need a bit of stretch. This highly conductive fabric has a resistance of less than 1 ohm per foot in any direction across the textile. It can be used to make soft keypads and capacitive touch sensors, as well as soft “squeeze” switches. Great for use with FLORA.
Sold as a 20cm x 20cm piece (minimum dimension). Use a dry iron on medium. Dry cleaning recommended. Do not use steam! Discoloration can occur.
NEW PRODUCT! Woven Conductive Fabric – Silver 20cm square – This woven conductive fabric is silver-plated nylon. Use small pieces for soft switches, plush keypads, capacitive touch sensors, and other textile interfaces. This highly conductive fabric has a resistance of less than 1 ohm per foot in any direction across the textile. Great for use with FLORA.
Sold as a 20cm x 20cm piece (minimum dimension). Iron on medium if necessary, steam ok. Dry cleaning recommended. Discoloration can occur over time.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
