I live in Minnesota and I'd been looking into conductive thread for a while, as going barehanded in -40 wind chill can be painful. I ordered and received this little kit a few days ago, and having successfully sewed in some pads to my glove liners I wanted to share my experiences.

The kit is all-inclusive: needle, thread, threader, cutter, and clear instructions.

In my case, the gloves in question are actually glove liners, thin spandex jobbies from Under Armour. (They go on under thick convertible mittens) I learned a couple of facts very quickly:

1: You really do need to make circular pad shapes. I tried making a loose 'grid' shape to create a larger contact patch for one specific finger and it was just not precise enough, nor could I complete the electrical circuit reliably. You really do need the thread to be closely-packed on both sides, and thus the small pad shape. With more than the 6' of thread included my mad plan might have worked, as I could have packed the threads closer together.

2: Placement is CRITICAL. I sewed all my patches with my free hand inside the inside-out glove liner so that I could match the patch location and shape with how that finger would normally touch the screen. Only one of my digits 'landed' perfectly (right thumb), and I'm pretty sure I'm going to take my leftover thread and modify the patches on my index fingers to either fill them in a bit or change their shape. That's not a criticism of the kit, but of my sewing skill.

The kit and thread do exactly what they're supposed to. The difficulty in use after sewing these in comes from aim and circuit completion.

I used the silver conductive thread to make a pair of knitted gloves 'tech-friendly'. Sewing little silver tips on the index finger and thumb of each glove gives the wearer the ability to use their smartphone/tablet without removing their gloves. I like that I can add conductivity to any pair of gloves, because the conductive gloves I've seen in the stores aren't very pretty. The thread is light and flexible which made it easy to sew. I had ordered thread from another supplier and it was thicker and harder to use for the kind of stitching I wanted to do. I would like to be able to purchase this thread in a larger quantity.

The thread was very thick and difficult to pass through leather motocycle gloves. It was easily done on one of my perforated gloves. Totally worked well and easy to use an iPhone with the thread sewn in. The thread then began to fray and fuzz up. I have to take scissors and snip off the fraying so they do not snag on anything. I think the idea is great for gloves that do not need to do a lot of manipulation like riding a motorcycle with throttle and clutch activity.

I would recommend this solution for making regular gloves work with smart phones. I have just a couple comments. It is IMPORTANT to make sure you sew through all the leather so the thread comes in contact with your finger to make the "contact' necessary for it to work.

The only complaint was the needle that comes with the pack. The holes is way too small for the thickness of the thread.
