Q:
what is the size/thickness of this spindle? im trying to see if it would fit in my sewing machine
Asked by: Winter Mraz
A:
Hi Winter,

The thread is approximately 18 denier so about the same thickness as darning thread. We have used this thread on our machines here before if that helps.

Q:
The thread quality seems to have changed, so the thread that used to be really soft is now much mere metalic and silvery. Du you still have the "old" version for sale?
Asked by: Sophie Hovdekorp
A:
I am sorry to say... After checking all availlable versions of the thread. (250 m, 45/50 m and the smC%l 2/6 meters - They have all changed since I originally bought my 250 m. roll back in 2017.
The thread is now on the latest 250 m. roll frizzy and feels like the one you can buy from Sparkfun - which is by no means recommendable for projects, where you have to sew with a very small distance between the threads. At least not in projects other than prototypes.

Q:
Hi, I was wondering how thick this thread was dimension wise?
Asked by: Ploy
A:
Hi Ploy, The thread is 18 denier, typically denier is used to determine the size of the thread. 18 Denier is larger than standard sewing thread but not as large as upholstery thread.

Q:
Hi,
Does this thread hold up to multiple washes?, does it tarnish or erode when exposed to water and can it be warn safely (i guess this depends on the power running through it) with heating and discharging power when touching the skin.

Asked by: Andy Hillyard
A:

The conductive thread can be washed and once dry used, however we don’t have any data to suggest how it will cope over a long period of time. Also in regards to the thread tarnishing or eroding we don’t have any data to suggest how the thread will degrade, however this would depend on the conditions that the thread was exposed to, such as period of time wet, frequency and water quality. In regards to the thread being warn safely it would depend on the voltage as you stated, realistically though the thread would burn up before it became unsafe to wear and have the possibility of giving a shock.
