I wanted to buy more of the Exclusive fabrics linen blend (91% poly 9% linen) drapes I previously purchased, but they were out of stock so I bought these. These are called khaki but there is definitely a peach undertone. The label says dry clean only. I figured 100% linen could be washed, so decided to experiment with one panel. Although they are reportedly 100% linen, they don't bleach like I'd expect of real linen. After a half-day soak in oxyclean the only result was that the grommets started to rust. Then I tried 30 minutes in a 1/8 solution of bleach in hot water. The color didn't change, but the fabric around the grommets started to fray a bit. Then I put them in the washer with Rit color remover. It removed the rust stains, but the color didn't really change. After all of my experimentation, the only real result was that they did shrink a little, about an inch in length. I didn't compare width. Otherwise they held up well to washing and ironing, and because I'd sort of abused the panel on which I was experimenting, I ordered another. Will use the one I sacrificed as pillow backs or something similar. The peachy undertones are not very obvious and are most pronounced in direct sunlight. Still, they look pretty awesome in my living room.
These lovely, lined drapes are top quality! The Blue Agave is lovely, mixing well with grey blues and greens such as sage. Excellent light blockers amd furniture savers during bright hours. Used with sheers, you always have the perfect light. The lining helps maintain a perfect temperature and the weighted hems allow even hanging. The Fuax silk and taffetas make for luxurious bedrooms and Exclusive Fabric patterns are wonderful. There is no better price than Overstock plus the incredible service.
