V-92 White UV Bonded Polyester Thread 4 oz. (1,350 yds.)
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. Perfect for use on sails, tents, boat covers, awnings, outdoor canvas covers and tarps.
Use this V-92 thread with a #18 or #20 needle on 6–10-ounce fabrics (including all Sunbrella® fabrics). We recommend a #20 needle when sewing with the Sailrite® Ultrafeed® Sewing Machine.
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.

Everything I've received from Sailrite is of the highest quality.
Best deal in town for thread
by Bill S -
Excellent quality on all of their thread, price too. Biggest decision is on how much to order. The larger spools have such a price drop that it is tempting to buy for a couple of years of use. But, can thread go bad over years and years when kept inside?

Good stuff. Does what it's suppose to do.
We have made many sail repairs, built many covers using V-92 and always have had operation free problems.
A must have

Arrived well packaged in box, cone shrink wrapped to protect threads. I am halfway with the cone and have not seen any type of fraying, works well with my LSZ-1 on size #20 needle.

Good stuff..... never had a thread issue with this. It sews extremely well and looks like it will last a long time with reasonable care. I have a bit of a weird habit of letting the thread pass through my fingers while winding bobbins. this way I can sense the tension and adjust the spooling just as a level wind fishing reel would do. This thread flows very smooth and I've never felt any any irregularity with it.

Great thread works well in any application that you have going.
Great all purpose thread for canvas!

Best sail thread for all around purposes. I bought this thread and used with lsz-1 and #20 needle to repair a job sacrificial cover. Stitched right over the old threads. 60+ feet of zig zag stitching and not one fault. Thread feeds very easy and is strong. I expect it'll last several years and saved me $100's making the repair myself, even after the purchase of the lsz-1 over the cost of taking it to the sailshop.

Great thread, It is general heavy thread. Works with most industrial sewing machine.
This thread was just what the Doctor ordered!

This thread was just what the Doctor ordered! Used it on the cover for my Flying Scot that I just finished works great on my Ultrafeed. I like to buy this size so I can have one cone for sewing and another cone set up for bobbin winding, that way I do not have to re-thread the machine to wind more bobbins.
