Format: 10-Yard Card

Many people with iPhones and similar devices are finding that they can't be used in regular gloves, and are looking to buy thread to make a fingertip conductive. For this, you don't need 200 yards of thread, so to save you money on thread and on postage, I'm offering ten yards of thread (still enough for a lot of fingers) mailed by regular letter mail for $10 US anywhere in the world. Postage is included. If that's what you need, simply pay $10 US to via this link:

If you require full spools of thread, you can calculate the cost including shipping using the calculator below. Once you know that you can pay for your thread in any of these ways:

This calculator is good for quantities up to ten spools of thread. If you want more than ten spools, I'll need to calculate the price to ship the required quantity to your mailing address. Once I know, I'll email you back. You send payment in whatever form of payment works best for you, and on receipt I'll mail the thread to you.
