How is this thread different from other conductive threads?
SewIY conductive thread is a novel multimaterial composite braid. Most conductive threads are made by twisting yarns made of spun conductive staple fibers. Some threads use traditional textile materials that have been surface-treated with silver or other conductors. For comparison, even the highest quality stainless steel conductive threads:
-Are not insulated
-Are not solderable
-Are noticeably stiffer and coarser
-Are more difficult to sew with
-Have 21 times or greater linear resistance
-Have significantly lower current carrying capacity
