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 colour looks much darker on the cone, but once sewn the colour blends to an almost perfect colour match. The colour is designed to change after the bonded coating passes through a sewing machine.
