Sunbrella vs. Aqualon....

Good day to all !!
We just purchased a good amount of Aqualon fabric. It was described to us a sunbrella type fabric. Well, the reality is....much different.
We can use it however. My concern is, will it take and hold thread like Sunbrella fabric ?
Does anyone have any experience with this material ? Any help would be much appreciated.
Take care !!
