We report a commercially attractive approach to manufacturing conducting textiles which is based on computerised flat-bed knitting technology using conducting yarns. We examine how flat-bed knitting can be used to manufacture large area samples of functional electromagnetic structures such as frequency selective surfaces (FSS). In addition we show how the knitting process can be adapted to allow the integration of conducting vias into a 3-D knitted spacer structure to form an electromagnetic high impedance surface (HIS).
