I like to use a non-woven conductive fabric because the edges don’t fray when cut with a scissor.
Woven rip stop fabric will fray even when using pinking shears.
Non-woven conductive fabric has a nice texture and does not fray.
The frayed edges of a woven conductive fabric can be used as conductive fringe.
Every eTextile project has its own limitations and uses of the materials. Choose your fabrics well and then use their attributes to your best advantage.
