They keep the hot sun out in the summer; and the cold out In the winter. My house is an old Victorian and I was so happy to find these wonderful curtains in 108"! They fit perfectly. They will be a little wrinkly when first hung. The package comes with tips to get them out, but I just let mine hang out. It took about a month.
These curtains were better than I expected. They have a beautiful satin look and can make the day time look like night when you close them. I got the 108 in curtains and they are definitely an attraction when people walk in. I love them.
We were a bit skeptical at first, because these curtains felt fairly thin (at least compared to other "thermal curtains" we already had), but as soon as they were up, we could tell that they are amazing. They look expensive (no cheap-looking crinkles in the fabric), glide smoothly, and do a fantastic job of blocking out the light as well as insulating the room from annoying drafts. We couldn't be happier and all our friends who come to the house now want them, too.
I had been looking to buy curtains FOREVER online. I was getting frustrated because of the lack of colors/styles when you are looking for 108 inches or higher. These had many color options and they are grommet topped. In addition the fabric feels very nice. Great product and it was less expensive than others that were not nearly as nice!
These were much higher quality than I expected them to be. I ordered the burgandy... they are a beautiful rich, matte, merlot color. They are heavy and easy to handle. I had to sew mine (they were a tad too long) and then iron them w/ a cool iron. They are perfect for the room. Great item. Great quality. Great price.
