Conductive Thread Bobbin - 12m (Smooth, Stainless Steel)


This product features 12 meters of smooth conductive thread made from stainless steel fiber and neatly wound on a plastic bobbin. It's an excellent choice for all your e-textile projects, providing an affordable entry point into the world of wearable electronics without the need to purchase a full spool of thread. The 12-meter length is ample to create a simple design on your shirt, backpack, or hat.

The unique quality of this thread lies in its composition. Unlike other conductive threads, it is spun from 12UM stainless steel fiber, resulting in an incredibly smooth finish without any loose hairs typically seen on other bobbins. While it might be challenging to solder due to its stainless steel nature, it won't burn when you touch it with a soldering iron. It's suitable for both hand and machine sewing (as a bobbin thread) and can be used for close, tight connections. If you have any concerns, waxing the thread can make it more manageable!
