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!
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 Stern's awesome tutorial and in 10 minutes flat you will have upgraded winter wear
Measures 0.4mm thick, 3 ply thread, 1.0 ohm per inch

Great! I bought several pairs of gloves at a bargain store, added felt tips to thumbs and index fingers, sewn on with diagonals of this conductive thread. Then embellished the cuffs with feathery wool - and voilà, beautiful touch-phone gloves as gifts!
Fast delivery, great product
I needed some conductive thread/yarn to make my gloves phone-friendly - works perfectly, and super-fast delivery means the stuff got to me in time before my trip.
