Introduction: Conductive Thread Comparison V2 24 January 2012

Use a multimeter to test a variety of conductive thread and conductive fabric for continuity and resistance. Esty vendors aajan29, Urbanstein and OhmSpun as well as Mitsifuji and some unknown manufacturers products are tested for use in wearable computing eTextile prototypes.

Words of advice - only purchase 'conductive' materials from vendors that post resistance in ohms/foot.
