CONDUCTIVITY / RESISTIVITY

Electrical resistivity (also known as resistivityspecific electrical resistance, or volume resistivity) is an intrinsic property that quantifies how strongly a given material opposes the flow of electric current. [ref]

Conductive and resisitive fabrics
Conductive and resistive threads

Certain fabrics can be piezoresistive and use to make sensor like pressure. The piezoresistive effect is a change in the electrical resistivity of a semiconductor or metal when mechanical strain is applied
