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.
- Improved resistance to strength loss from UV exposure over standard polyester filament thread
- Good seam strength
- UV resistant
- Consistent diameter and excellent ply

Strong, quality thread. Sews very well in my Singer sewing machine.
Good quality thread. Would buy it again.
Good product I have used it successfully in the past
Best for my leather products business.
Most importantly, this is high quality thread. Most threads this weight do not run smoothly through my machine. This thread is smooth and faultless. Long runs are smooth and even. It’s also a comparatively good price. Sailrite will be my no. 1 go to for sewing products.
Love this thread works well in/on my LSZ, but also works well with my vintage home machines !
Bought the cone to not run out and the quality of thread is better than the other outdoor thread which I’m not sure really had UV protection
Glad I got this high quality thread. It sew so much better than the retail store thread! Plus I no longer have to re-spool constantly!
