Copying my answer from Is there a way to print / draw a circuit on to clothing?

See http://www.plusea.at/ for all kinds of wearable electronics, including conductive fabric, thread, etc.

How To Get What You Want by the same people has more details:

  1. Less EMF has the largest selection in the States
  2. Eeonyx sells a range of high performance materials that you can order to spec.
  3. Fine Silver Products sells silver-doped fabrics
  4. How To Get What You Want gives a good overview of the known conductive fabric merchants
  5. Fashioning Technology blog should give you some inspiration

A trip to the store with a multi-meter can be enlightening. Various commonly available tapes, fabrics, gels, packages etc. are conductive.
