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
Matched and work for outside patio furniture.
Perfect for sewing faux leather indoor chair cushion covers.
Following the advice to change the tension on my home machine, this thread worked perfectly sewing the Phifertex sling fabric.
Just what I needed, fast shipping too!!!!
Same color as fabric
Good, but slippery polyester for the sewing machine
Its very slippery and I had to increase the tension on the sewing machine and the bobbin case to get neat stitches. It was unfortunately a lot of thread and didn't use more than a 1/3
Perfect color and easy to use for sewing new slings for the patio furniture.
Great color, matched fabric perfectly.
V 69 thread
Have used this thread size/type many times. This is a new color for me. Expect the same usual fine results.
This thread worked very well on my Husquvarna sewing machine when I made cushions from olefin material for outdoor furniture! I also used it to repair outdoor wind chimes.
