V-69 Beige UV Bonded Polyester Thread 4 oz. (1,350 yds.)
This is a high performance, twisted multifilament polyester outdoor thread that is perfect for sail and canvaswork. 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 non-wicking 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. Use this V-69 thread with a #16 or #18 needle. Perfect for use on sails, tents, boat covers, awnings, outdoor canvas covers and tarps.
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.
Please Note: Thread color looks much darker on the cone, but once sewn the color blends to an almost perfect color match. The color is designed to change after the bonded coating passes through a sewing machine.

The V-69 Beige thread quality is great. In fact, I bought several other colors of the Polyester as well.

The color of thread that arrived is darker and not as warm as pictured. It looks to me like more of a mushroom brown. I’m very disappointed that it is much too dark for the Phifertex Vinyl Sling Cane Weave Pacifc fabric I ordered. I had called before I placed my order to get advice on which color matched the best which the gal who I talked to suggested colors but was very noncommittal. There should be a thread matching chart available for the Phifertex fabrics like there is for the Sunbrella fabrics. Please give your customers and employees some help when choosing colors.
