Description

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.

Features:

  • 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

So happy to find this!

The thickest thread I can use on my home machine. It is perfect for sewing a new cover for outdoor furniture. I appreciate Sailrite's colors of the thread as I wanted a match for my fabric.

Sailrite versus regular thread for outdoor projects

Great thread. I wish it would come with less yardage for us diyers. I had to transfer it to a bobbin because my sewing machine will not hold a spool that large. But i am glad I spent the money to make sure the thread lasts as long as the sunbrella fabric.

Sailrite Response

We have added a blog on using large spools of thread on a home sewing machine that I believe you will find helpful. Just type this number into the search box on our website. X-HT-300022  Happy Sewing!!
