They are matte finish textured linen and feel nice and heavy. The white is paper white... not yellow at all, and if anything has a slight grey/beige cast due to the natural fiber. The lining filters light well for sleeping. Happy with this purchase!
These curtain panels were a pleasant surprise. I did not realize they are lined which I was very pleased about. They are hanging in a guest bedroom set of French doors. I purchased the 108" size. I do believe they are a bit overpriced, but then again, they are linen and they are lined. They have minor imperfections as linen does, but overall I'm very happy with this purchase and would purchase again.
