What needle should I use for sewing Sunbrella fabric?

For Sunbrella Upholstery fabric, we recommend using a #16-#18 size needle with rounded points to “push” the yarns aside instead of cutting them. Your sewing thread diameter and needle size should be properly matched (100-110 NM thread – Size 16-18 needle).
