Here at Sailrite®, we believe that choosing the right thread is just as important as choosing the right fabric. When you’re working on indoor jobs like upholstery, drapery, home décor and crafts, pick out high-quality thread from Sailrite to get the job done right. In general, our indoor-use fabrics are made from nylon and polyester and although they’re quite durable, they are not recommended for any outdoor applications. These high-performance thread options are ideal for home and upholstery projects like pillows, slipcovers, window treatments, cushions, apparel, luggage and more. Sailrite provides quality-made thread by Anefil and Coats®.
We have a large variety of high-quality indoor nylon thread that’s perfect for upholstery. Available in an endless selection of colors to suit your unique project, nylon thread will perfectly complement any seating or cushion job. This type of thread has excellent elasticity, so it will give just slightly when someone sits on the seat. Nylon thread is also a good choice for applications such as luggage because it’s very abrasion-resistant yet easy to sew. For a bit more durability, be sure to peruse our cornucopia of indoor polyester thread. Polyester provides enough strength and abrasion resistance for demanding indoor applications such as upholstery and drapery.
If you are in the market for an indoor thread that provides added UV-resistance — such as for window treatments or upholstery in sun-drenched rooms where fading is a concern — then we recommend choosing a UV-resistant thread from our selection. Unsure which thread size to choose? Worry not! Sailrite has put together a convenient Thread Sizing Guide that you can reference before making a decision. This guide will walk you through how to choose thread for your specific application based on weight, tex and denier count. Sailrite also stocks a large variety of outdoor thread for making covers, dodgers, biminis, patio cushions, sail covers and more.
