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
- Non-wick treatment to limit moisture migration
- Consistent diameter and excellent ply

Perfect for the fabric. Sewed great on my BERNINA machine.
Thread works great. I was able to adjust my 50-year-old Singer to work with this thicker thread. Had to improvise to get the spool to stay on machine, but it’s working fine.
i really like this thread and the fast shipping from Sailrite.com
Works great in regular home machines
Worked in my standard sewing machine. I also found it great for hand sewing projects where I need a sturdy thread.
Product bought based on Sailrite recommendations for doing a Sunfish window install. It was right on and we were able to see it in with a quilters sewing machine.
I use this for sewing plastic tarp boat cover. Works well in my Singer HD, strong stuff!
Perfect needle thread combination for my full boat cover project.
