RECCOMENDATIONS
Urbanstein’s thread sold on ebay and etsy is not conductive and therefore NOT RECOMMENDED for eTextiles, soft circuit, craft-tech, or wearable computing.

Urbanstein Thread from ebay and etsy is NON-conductive - Do Not Purchase!
 

This thread is very similar to ebay seller tripmom2011 which is also NOT CONDUCTIVE. They are both grossly over priced pretty threads.

If you want a similar colored fashion thread I suggest going to your local sewing store and purchasing a 250 yard spool of Sulky HaloShimmer thread for $3.50 USD.

Sulky HaloShimmer Thread Alternative to Urbanstein NOT conductive thread
 

Urbanstein’s ebay listing 19 March 2014 sells 5 yards of thread for $5 + $1.50 shipping USD.
This thread is NOT CONDUCTIVE NOT RECCOMENDED
