SparkFun's Description of the Conductive Thread Bobbin - 12m (Smooth, Stainless Steel)

Description

This is 12 meters of smooth conductive thread spun from stainless steel fiber 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. Close to 40 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 12UM stainless steel fiber making it incredibly smooth and without the loose hairs seen on other bobbins. 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). We’ve had no trouble using it for close, tight connections, but if you’re worried, waxing the thread should keep it manageable!

Features:

  • Material : 12UM Stainless steel fiber
  • Gram Weight:0.2458g/m
  • Strength:2.8KGF
  • Diameter(mm):0.12
  • Resistance (Ω/m) : 27
  • 12m per spool (on plastic spools)

Conductive Thread Bobbin - 12m (Smooth, Stainless Steel) Guides
Proximity-sensing Hat and EagLED

The EagLED is a snappable wearable development kit that makes it easy to create your own wearables.

In this guide, we will build an assistive device for the blind, specifically a proximity-sensing hat! When coming close to an obstacle, the Lilypad Vibe board will give a little vibration near the ear, to prevent any accidental collisions from happening. We'll be using the EagLED, Lilypad Vibe board, Sharp Infrared Distance Sensor and conductive thread. 

Complete this guide to create a proximity-sensing hat with the EagLED!

Light-up Badge with EagLED

The EagLED has multiple sew tabs around the board for each component, which makes it easy to create wearables with conductive thread!

In this guide, you will learn to use conductive thread to create a light-up badge. We'll also introduce you to some basic sewing techniques and tips for using conductive thread in building circuits. 

Complete this guide to create your own light-up badge with the EagLED.
