Abstract In order to improve comfort of smart garment, rigid electronic boards can be replaced with textile circuits, which use conductive yarns. When one tries to improve wearing comfort, often the most problematic items turn to be connection points of the electronic circuitry. The aim of this research is to determine behaviour of conductive yarns after they have been sewn into textile material, as well as to determine their suitability for the intended applications. In order to determine the quality of a conductive connective seams resistance has been measured (in Ω) under the influence of various variable factors: type of yarn, length of stitch, number of layers, type of seam. Besides that seam durability tests were carried, which show resistance changes over time and after washing.
