What is Conductive Thread and WHY use it?
When you use a touchscreen with your finger, your skin acts as a conductor to send a low voltage message to your device that tells it what to do. If you are wearing gloves, the conductive property of your skin is masked and then your touchscreen can’t complete the circuit with your finger! Enter conductive thread, a material that conducts electricity at a low voltage. If you incorporate this into your knit fabric or sew it onto your store bought gloves then you can use your phone and NOT take off your glove/mitten to do it!

This conductive thread has a resistance of approximately 0.4 ohm / cm, or 12 ohm / foot and is perfect for this application!

I've also written a knitted glove pattern, available free on Knitty, that you can knit to go along with your conductive thread: http://knitty.com/ISSUEwbis11/PATTteknika.php
