Nylon thread is a great choice for sewing fabric, leather, canvas, and vinyl.
Nylon thread can withstand moderate exposure to sunlight, provided that it is not exposed long term, or there is some sort of ultraviolet (UV) protection (e.g. windshields, or unexposed seams). This is why it is popular for automotive interiors, upholstery, and many other applications. It should not be used for outdoor furniture and sewing sails, awnings, tarpaulins.

Nylon is an artificial fiber. It is one of the most commonly used polyamides and was first used on February 28, 1935. Nylon makes a silky material that was first used in toothbrushes. It is strong, hard, and water-resistant. It is used to make clothes. In fact, polyamides are mostly used for synthetic fibers in the clothing. Nylon can also be used to make other materials, such as parachutes, ropes, carpets, fishing nets, and cloth, and socks. Nylon was invented by Wallace Carothers at Du-Pont.
