    Conductive Wool

    Conductive wool is perfect for felting. It is very fine conductive fibers (steel) mixed with normal wool, or with polyester. The one with wool works better for felting.

      Hi!

      My name is Teresa, nice to meet you!

      I am trying to make a tablecloth on a loom. I would like this tablecloth to block mobile phone signals. Therefore I want to combine a natural fiber such as wool or linen with a the technical thread needed for blocking this type of frequencies. Which type of technical thread should I use? What do you think of this one? http://www.bekaert.com/en/products/basic-materials/textile/stainless-steel-fibers-for-shielding-textiles-bekinox. It is a stainless steel fiber for shielding textiles.

      I live in Barcelona, do you know any suppliers of this kind of threads around Spain?

      Thank you in advance

      Teresa
