Because of the properties of the
It is also possible that if you include a thick enough yarn in combination with a thinner resistive yarn, that you will achieve an “off” (no electrical contact) state. Bellow are a series of examples using both the Schoeller Nm 10/3 yarn, which on it’s own is too conductive to give a good pressure to resistance range. The Nm 50/2 is thin and can be nicely used together with other yarns and gives a very good range.
- Nm 10/3 80% Polyurethane, 20% Inox steel fibre @ Euros 36.00/kg (3,333 metres/kg)
- Nm 50/2 60% Polyurethane, 40% Inox steel fibre @ Euros 65.00/kg (25,000 metres/kg)
- Nm 50/2 80% Polyurethane, 20% Inox steel fibre @ Euros 40.25/kg( 25,000 metres/kg)

Crocheted in a granny square (circle).
Purely conductive yarn (Nm 10/3) does not give such a wide range of change in resistance when pressured, especially when crocheted as tightly as in the picture bellow.
