That new yarn? - wearable, washable textile devices are possible with MXene-coated yarns

Researchers in Drexel University's College of Engineering and Center for Functional Fabrics have developed a way to coat yarn with conductive MXene materials to make durable functional textiles. Image: Drexel University

Hitting snags

By integrating MXene flakes into the fibers of yarn, researchers at Drexel University can produce functional textiles that are durable enough to wear and wash. Image: Drexel University

The winning combination

Putting it to the test

Drexel University researchers developed and tested conductive MXene yarn in industrial digital knitting machines. Image: Drexel University
