Conductive Yarns

Conductive Yarns



I received these sample threads from Bekaert ( to experiment with my quilt. I selected these threads based on their resistance levels. I am hoping that some of them could be used in resistive heating applications if I decide to include thermochromic inks in my quilt. At the very least, these will be useful in building the quilts circuitry and will serve as resistors for the LEDs that will be embedded throughout the quilt.

    love the enthusiasm.
