I wanted something that blocked the sun and only hinted at gold. These do the job very nicely. I was concerned they might be too golden. I took a chance and am happy I did. The picture shows them as more gold-colored than they really are. They were quite wrinkled on arrival, but that was OK with me because I always iron new drapes -- even these, despite the manufacturer's warning not to iron them. I used constant, medium steam, a cotton/poly heat setting, and just kept the iron moving. For deep-set wrinkles, I held the steaming iron a little above the material for a few secs before applying heat. No harm done and all wrinkles disappeared.
