Hi Simon, thanks for you interest this pre knitted tube wire, is a great material its flexible, can be re moulded and re used. It comes in 10mm, 15mm, and 85mm. I use it to make bespoke jewellery combined with hand crafted techniques. I wanted to create a garment that repels as I believe this wire is conductive and if programmed with Lily pad Audrino it may respond to touch, just a crazy idea. I first started using the 85mm to create a floatation garment around the exterior of the body skin(Fashion)and bones (Architecture) book inspired me, this project can be seen on my blog under Croch-K-Net. I like working with interesting materials adding my own signature to it. take care Laura
