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

A quality Thread makes a difference
Exactly as described. Using to mend outdoor patio umbrellas. Thread is strong and does not kink or knot when using.
Worked extremely well in my Bernette B77 using a heavy duty needle.
Everything sailrite sells is the best quality product you can find period, this thread is no exception .
Greatly appreciated being able to buy this thread, which matches our green and white tropical Sumbrella print beautifully. Has a nice sheen.
This Thread is high quality and a good match for the material I am working with.
