Want to add my two cents on these roll up shades --- I've been looking for a shade to put up in the summer to block out the sun ... these are going to be great ... roll them down for the am, roll them up for the pm ... work well. Easy to install. I had planned to take them down in the winter, but may keep them up as they look great. I ordered the natural; it has white strings, note. Also, I thought the hardware was omitted, but it was rolled up in the shade itself, and once I rolled out the shade I found it. Just a sheet of instruction might be good for those of us who are a little unsure of ourselves, but I managed.
