These curtains are terrific...You can hang them three different ways; using the rod pocket or curtain clip rings for a more formal look; or for a slightly more casual look, using the terrific loops of fabric on the back of the curtain's rod pocket. . The curtains have exquisite noise and light blocking properties. They are a nice midweight. They hang nicely. I purchased them because my summer drapes are lightweight, and installed them to mitigate the bitter cold of this winter in a mountain state. What a marvelous comfort level,now: both rooms in which I hung them have grown noticeably warmer. I used a set for each window with a center panel that contrasts and allows in light...when it is not bitter cold, and when i want the room lighter, I just part the insulated drapes (which look to be just very pretty and expensive looking "regular" drapery) more widely to showcase the contrasting panel. They look very lovely this way.
