This fantastic new 'Electro-Fashion' range from Kitronik has been specially designed so that electronics can easily be used in textile applications; they allow lighting effects to be added to textiles designs without soldering.
The kits use 'conductive thread' which is a thread that can be used like cotton thread but conducts electricity like a wire.
This kit uses our own custom designed 'stitchable' coin cell holder. This has the benefit of large, easy to stitch connection points (no more difficult little holes!) and clearly marked terminals which show the battery polarity.
- Easily add lights to textiles projects.
- Easy to stitch connection points.
- Clearly marked battery polarity terminals.
- No soldering required.
- 1 x Coin Cell Holder.
- 1 x Colour Changing 5mm Diffused LED - 750mCd.
- 1 x 2m Conductive Thread.
- 1 x CR2032 3V Coin Cell.
- Sewable Coin Cell Holder Length: 34mm.
- Sewable Coin Cell Holder Width: 20mm.
- Sewable Coin Cell Holder Height: 4.5mm.
- CR2032 Battery Height: 3.2mm.
- CR2032 Battery Diameter: 20mm.
- The coin cell holders in this pack contain Nickel and should not be used in designs where it will be in prolonged contact with the skin.

Hi, Is it possible to wash (in washing machine) the Electro-Fashion parts after being applied to clothes?
Posted byon Tuesday, 24 March 2015
Please ensure you remove the coin cell battery before washing. You can wash the electro fashion parts, although some tarnishing of the pads may occur so we don’t recommend this. If you do wish to wash the garments we suggest hand washing. The parts will need to be fully dry before being used.
Hi Any chance we could sample this kit. Kind Regards. Steve Sims DT technician
Posted byon Wednesday, 5 November 2014Hi Steve, sure you can! Just go to and select the kit (2709) from the drop down menu, enter your school's details and we'll post one right out to you.
I ordered 2 LED textile kits and only got one LED per kit- this is really misleading as I then had to go out and buy LEDs. The picture clearly shows 2.
Posted byon Tuesday, 22 April 2014Hi Jennie, I'm sorry about that, it looks like someone reused the flashing LED kit image for the picture which does include 2 LEDs. The description does list the contents of the kit correctly but I can see where the confusion came from. I will get the image changed ASAP and if you still need them I can send you two colour changing LEDs. Please email the address you would like them delivered to to firstname.lastname@example.org
