Thread count looks a little low.
Looks "a little low" compared to what?
apparently compared to >2x heavier and much stiffer dacron, where a lower thread count would need a thinner (breaking) needle.
Apart from the LE closing seam, in all other loaded seams the sheer strength of the double adhesive tape bonding does the job, right? The seams are there mainly to prevent peeling of the adhesive. And that PSA should bond even better to the Aluula surface.
LE closing - 2 paralel seams with higher stitch density (same seam strenght as heavier count thread), running very close so the inner one is not just a 'safety' seam. Looks good to me.

Somehow Aluula doesn't rely on thread count for strength.
Stafford, can we please have a few more photos of the LE closing seam? Thanks
