Not so much.
Needle felting provides a way to make conductive fabric that fits your aesthetic and your resistance.

Step 2: Conductive thread roving
As I mentioned in the prior step I made my own conductive rovings.
I had conductive thread samples from Shieldex that were not suitable for sewing as they are 'air spun'.
I made quick work of shredded this thread apart with my fingers and a scissor.
Shieldex also sells conductive filler. I have not used this product, but from the description it sounds similar to roving.
Step 3: Layer Fiberous Design
Begin by placing a layer of wool roving on the needle felting pad.
Layer with conductive roving and repeat.
Step 4: Punch the Needle
Once you have the shape and layers you desire use the needle punch to secure the fibers to one another.
Step 5: Test resistance
Using your multimeter test the resistance of your project to be sure it works with your aesthetic and electrical design standards.
