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

Great thread for outdoor projects
Was making a new outdoor swing canopy for a friend. I needed a thicker more durable thread. This was perfect. Delivery was quick. I would recommend Sailrite.
This quality thread matches the orange (what they call "Salsa") fabric.
Excellent customer service
Very strong thread. I had a problem with thread but contacted Sailrite and they quickly answered and offered a working solution.
Thread is very strong and easy to sew with.
Matches my fabric perfectly.
Red polyester sewing thread.
Thread worked fine. Strong and slid well through the guides of the machine. Laid perfect when sewn into the fabric. The color wasn't, as bright as expected.
Great thread for a great price
I buy all my thread from Sailrite because their thread is high quality and their price can't be beat. This is a no-nonsense outdoor thread and I never had a problem using it on my LSZ-1.
