Nope, you can’t purchase one, you gotta make it yourself.

Unless you are one of those who can remember the entire color code for 4- and 5-band marked resistors (test later on how many possible combinations there are; I’m still working on wiring up CAT-5 correctly), you need the help of a reference chart or you can use the handy papercraft Adafruit Resistor Helper. Need a cool thing to wear to work or school? What better time to make or give the gift of a tie? Of course, for the geek and technically inclined, a hacked tie would be even better.
