It lasts forever, and I mean FOREVER.

Sailrite - Fabric, Canvas, and Sewing Machines Since 1969

Lots of Youtube videos featuring this wonderful stuff as well.
$129.95 each.. I read the Sailrite link but could not find how many feet or meters that includes, anybody knows?

And is there any other less expensive UV-proof option to use for outdoor sunbrella work?

It's an 8 oz cone. A different website has an 8 oz cone of Tenara and says it's 1,860 yards.

Sailrite also sells Profilen thread. Same price for 8 oz but it's also available in 4 oz cones for $69.95. I haven't used it myself, but my understanding is that it's easier to use with oscillating hook machines like the LS-Z 1 as compared to the Tenara.

I was gasping about the price but had no idea there's nearly one nautical mile of thread in that cone. I reckon should be enough for a bimini or two..

Between all our projects (and a few commercial ones) we're mostly through our first cone. Still have at at least 500 yards left.
