When it comes to new and innovative solutions, Trivantage® stands ready to help you bring any project to life, from start to finish. That commitment includes the threads required for the toughest of sewing projects, which is why we are excited to offer three new spool sizes for GORE TENARA thread.


Made from an exclusive industry-leading ePTFE fiber, GORE® TENARA® thread is now available in:

  • 300-meter spools – Reduced investment for more colors
  • 1/2-pound spools – Best standard-sized option
  • 1-lb. spools – Allows longer runs without having to change spools


TENARA thread comes in three styles for increased color choices and performance features. The original TENARA is for general outdoor sewing applications; TR Style is lubricated for high-speed sewing; and HTR Style is a 3-ply heavy-duty option for your toughest sewing projects. All threads come with a limited lifetime warranty.


Count on TENARA thread to improve sewability. The robust, elongated thread also allows for faster sewing. Included in the color options is the highly popular clear thread that disappears into most fabrics for ease of matching. The industrial, UV-resistant thread stays strong through severe weather and abrasion, and it will not fade or bleed into the into the fabric.
