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.
- 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

At a Glance
great product, just wish you would sell a small spool for those of us who are only doing four or five chairs.
Ideal for the application (replacing slings on garden chairs.)
Excellent product for my needs.
Great! works with my sewing machine.
Note that this is a large spool that probably won't fit on a home sewing machine. We worked around this by setting it in a heavy coffee mug behind the machine and it worked great.
Exactly what I wanted.
Your helpful table of recommendations enabled me to choose the right products to renovate my patio chairs.
Exactly what. we ordered, thank you
Looks good and works well
This is a quality thread that has been feeding through my LSZ-1 without issue.
