This is the style I needed to go with my current curtain rod. It will provide good coverage of rod.

I like to hang my curtains up near the ceiling and have them just touch the floor. I find the 4" header is more elegant and proportional for this length of curtain.

4" is the deeper choice. I find this provides a firmer heading when I am using shirring tape for drapes. Good quality and price.

Can I insert this in a pole pocket drape to make the header stiffer? I want to use drapery pins on a store bought drape, but I would like the header to more firm and not so flimsy.
A shopper on Jan 24, 2018
BEST ANSWER: You could certainly use this, but you'll have to stitch it on so if your store-bought drapes already have a pocket it might look too busy with your extra stitches. Plus, if you want the actual pleating to occur your panels will need to be at least 1 1/2 width, preferably 2-2 1/2. However, you could just sew this on and not pull the threads which form the pleats, thereby whatever panel width you have will be merely stiffer and you'll be able to use your hooks. I made my lined drapes using this product and they came out well with perfect pencil pleats. (You might look into using an iron-on translucent drapery header tape (buckram), in which case you would not use your hooks.)
My drapes will be 160" long, should I use the 3" or 4" tape?
Karyn D on Aug 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It depends on personal preference.
Can this product be purchased by a 55-yd-bolt?
A shopper on Feb 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The tape's max continuous length is 36 yards, so if you order 55 yards, it would most likely come in 2 pieces.
Is this tape in a firm material. Is it a soft weave or medium, hard?
A shopper on Sep 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The material has a stiffness to it but is still flexible. It's perfect for drapery headings. The 3" version of this shirring tape is used in this pencil pleat curtain tutorial: www.onlinefabricstore.net/makersmill/how-to-make-pencil-pleat-curtains-with-shirring-tape/
