UV Resistant Thread

Sewing Thread

Excel Sewing Supply is pleased to introduce an improved UV-resistant thread. Shakespeare's new SN-UVR-38 thread has the same physical properties, clarity and sewability as their standard SN-38 thread.  However, this new UV resistant thread will maintain its useful life in applications exposed to sunlight several times longer than many other threads.  Lab testing indicates that SN-UVR-38 will maintain more than 50% of its original strength after the equivalent of more than 4 years exposure to Florida sunlight. This is nearly six times longer than our standard SN-38 with no UV stabilizer, and three times longer than our SN-38 color 602 (clear with a different UV stabilizer which we have used for decades).


Available in sizes .009, .010, .011, and .012
