Conductive textile yarns were prepared by a continuous vapor polymerization method; the application of polypyrrole by the continuous vapor polymerization method used is designed for the easy adaptation into industrial procedures. The resultant conductive yarns were examined by longitudinal and cross-sectional views, clearly showing the varying levels of penetration of the polymer into the yarn structure. It was found that for wool the optimum specific resistance was achieved by using the 400 TPM yarn with a FeCl3 solution concentration of 80 g/L FeCl3 to produce 1.69 Ω g/cm2. For cotton yarn, the optimum specific resistance of 1.53 Ω g/cm2 was obtained with 80 g/L of a FeCl3 solution.
