I am very happy with my purchase of the Thermal Curtain Panel (Cream Color). I was very surprised when I opened box because the curtain resembled the light green color shown in the picture. I wanted to buy the khaki color but they ran out of the longer size so I was extremely pleased with the natural looking silk color with the greenish sheen. When I opened the package I felt the material and yes just like everyone said it felt sort of like a shower curtain. I ran them through my dyers steam cycle to get the folds out. I had five huge windows to cover and they are perfect!! They are a stiff enough fabric to hang great! I put them on 2 inch rings with clips so they would be a little longer and slide out of the way easily. They block just enough so we can watch TV during day without glare and also give us privacy at night. They slide completely out of the way so we still have maximum view.
