Hook & Loop strips (such as Velcro) are extremely versatile touch fasteners.
This 10cm long strip is perfect for E-Textile projects where you need to make a complete circuit by simply forming a connection between the hook and loop pieces. You can use this strip to light LEDs, form a simple on/off switch, make a pair of "velcro" shoes even sweeter than they already are, or pretty much anything you can come up with! Use it the same way you would use conductive fabric.
Each strip is silver-treated to make it fully conductive and is 2.5cm wide and 10cm long. Additionally, the surface resistance for both the hook and the loop is 1Ω per centimetre.
- 1Ω per cm resistance.
- Cut to required length.
- 1 x Conductive Hook & Loop Strip.
- Length: 10cm.
- Width: 2.5cm.
- Conductive Thread.

Hi Im thinking of using the conductive velcro to make a simple on/off switch. Do I sew it onto my fabric using conductive thread which then attaches to the battery and lights - or can I glue the conductive thread to the back of it and it will still work? Thanks

You would sew a small amount of conductive thread onto one end of each piece of the Velcro (hook side and loop side), you wouldn’t need to sew the how strip of Velcro to your fabric using conductive thread. You wouldn’t be able to glue the conductive thread to the Velcro as this will not provide a suitable connection.
