Besides alligator clips, Digikey part #609-4477-ND is a recommended connector to use with this ribbon cable.

Note: Although oxidation is severely reduced by the textile ribbon insulating the four channels of conductive thread, all silver thread is prone to gaining resistance over time and may eventually lose conductivity altogether. Please keep this in mind before purchase, they do not know how long this will last since it's a new product, stop back for updates as they use and experiment with this material.
