Dyneema (c) is a registered trade name of the Dutch company DSM Dyneema, B.V. They have a factory in Greenville, NC, U.S.A.

Spectra (c) is a registered trade name of the U.S. firm Honeywell International Inc.

Both are fibers independently developed by their respective manufacturers and while their production details likely differ, both are made of Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene, or UHMWPE fibers.

Weight for weight, they are up to 15 times stronger than steel and up to 40% stronger than Kevlar (c) (DuPont).

Being slender for their strength, they offer less aerodynamic drag than other types of line.

They are more abrasion resistant than high carbon steel.

They are resistant to UV light.

They do not absorb water (and they float).

They exhibit very low stretch compared to nylon or Dacron lines (like comparing steel wire to rubber bands).

Great replies. I have braided fishing line in a couple of pocket fishing kits, wound on sewing machine bobbins.

Sewing machine bobbins. Great idea for small dia fishing line in tiny kits. You can use ma's sewing machine to wind the line. When I was making tiny fishing kits I would wind the line on a stick or something. TOOK FOREVER to wind enough line to be useful.

If the line used has a bend memory, winding on bobbins may make the line so tightly coiled as to be difficult to ever use if needed.

True probably not the best for monofiliment. But, would work fine for the braided line like Chuk said.

If I were making my kits again I would be using all spectra line, best of both worlds. High strength, tiny dia. I don't know how it would respond to tight small dia long term storage.

Now that I think more about it, I was using small bandaid boxes to hold the kits, and winding the line around the outside of the boxes. Mostly braided with a couple different test mono for leaders. Not really the best because I thought that the only tape to keep the line in place I would trust to not foul up the line was masking. But then the masking tape would come loose after a few years.
