We've been looking for thermal curtains with an elegant sheen for a long time. I only found insanely expensive ones that came one panel to a package. These aren't as thick as most thermals but it does the job keeping our south facing master bedroom cool. The texture is a little plastic-like but that doesn't bother me. They look marvelous with their sheen and silk-like look.Bonus points because they're SO incredibly inexpensive for curtains in general, let alone thermals, let alone faux-silk AND it comes two panels to a bag. LOVE IT!
