This is a twisted multifilament nylon sewing thread that is ideal for sewing a wide variety of applications. Anefil Nylon thread has good abrasion resistance, excellent seam strength and superior sewability. The bonded finish of this thread gives it a consistent diameter and excellent ply security. Use this nylon thread for automotive and furniture upholstery, leather, luggage and handbags, sporting goods, covers, tie-downs and more.
Anefil Nylon thread has added UV inhibitors that give it extra UV resistance when compared to other nylon threads. This thread should not be used in applications that see sustained outdoor use. A UV polyester thread is recommended for outdoor applications.
Use this V-138 thread with a #20 or #22 needle on fabrics over 10 ounces per square yard. This thread size is not suitable for use on a home sewing machine.
Thread on a cone should pull up off the top of the cone for a smoother feed to the sewing machine and add an extra twist in the thread. The extra twist increases thread strength, helps keep the thread from unlaying, and eases tension problems.
Note: Thread color is more gray than white. Thread always looks darker on the cone than it will once sewn.
