Description

This is a high performance, twisted multifilament polyester outdoor thread that is perfect for sail and canvas work. Sunstop polyester thread has advanced UV protection that is specially designed for outdoor applications where seam strength and fade prevention are required. Sunstop Thread also features a nonwicking finish that helps to reduce moisture coming through seams. This polyester thread very seldom frays at the needle eye, and the consistent bonded finish minimizes the need for continual machine tension adjustments. Perfect for use on sails, tents, boat covers, awnings, outdoor canvas covers, and tarps.

Use this V-92 thread with a #18 or #20 needle on 6–10 oz. fabrics (including all Sunbrella fabrics). We recommend a #20 needle when sewing with the Sailrite Ultrafeed sewing machine.

Specifications:

Size: V-92 (Tex 90)
Quantity: 4 ounces (1,050 yards per spool)
Color: Navy

Features:

  • Improved resistance to strength loss from UV exposure over standard polyester filament thread
  • Good seam strength
  • UV resistant
  • Non-wick treatment to limit moisture migration
  • Consistent diameter and excellent ply
  • High strength and stretch control
  • Left-twist thread

Sailmaker's thread should pull up off the top of the cone for a smoother feed to the sewing machine and to add an extra twist in the thread. The extra twist increases thread strength, helps keep the thread from unlaying, and eases tension problems.
