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

THIS IS SOME VERY HIGH QUALITY THREAD
The thread was perfect for the chair repair we were going to do.
The color matched the Sunbrella fabric I bought perfectly and it worked great on my home sewing machine
I really like this thread. I used it with a size 14 needle with no problems. I t has a firm finish that gives it a bit of stiffness and it goes through the needle and fabric with ease.
Very heavy duty!
Happy with product!
Strong and easy to work with.
Strong and Beautiful
Very strong and high quality thread with beautiful sheen.
Perfect color to match the fabric I ordered. Other than that I cannot comment as I haven't yet used this product.
This works well with a brother sewing machine
