Just like Felted Pompom Pressure Sensor and felted crochet pressure sensor, it also works as when conductive yarns are woven into a textile structure. Here I tried two types of woven structure, satin and honeycomb.
The honeycomb is a structure often used for tea towels and blankets. It creates 3D structure when taken off from the loom. This 3D structure helps for the pressure sensor to function as it separates the yarn when not pressured, and it also gives a nice bouncy feedback when you touch/pressure.
Here is the 8 shaft construction for the honeycomb.
The another structure I tried is the weft faced satin. as satin does not bind the yarn tight compare to the plain weave structures, it still allows the external pressure to change its density (resistance).
Here is the weaving construction of the 8shaft satin.
To make these sample pieces, I used
As for weaving, I used computerized shaft loom from Toika, with the warp 12/cm, cotton thread setup.
