Why did you choose this?
is this thermaform lining an 'interlining'? Can it be used as the only lining? Can this be used for Roman shades? Can it be ironed or pressed to crease the shade folds?
which side - the suede feel or smooth feel - is the "right" side i.e. the side that is placed towards the window.?
BEST ANSWER: The two sides honestly look and feel very similar, so there isn't necessarily a right or wrong side.
I have a florida room with very drafty windows, will this fabric block the drafts that are coming in?
Would this lining material block out sunlight and heat from a south exposure window?
How bulky is this lining?
BEST ANSWER: It's thick and I was a bit concerned when purchasing but because the window gets direct sunlight I went ahead and got it. I have to say is wonderful! Once up the curtains hang perfectly and you would never know that it as thick as it is. I love it and would definitely buy again.
is fabric opaque or can fabric pattern be detected through?
BEST ANSWER: Opaque. Cannot see fabric through this lining
how much insulation does this offer? Does this hang/fold nicely with the curtains?
BEST ANSWER: This is beautiful lining fabric that hangs nicely with the curtain fabric. It has a very nice feel and is high quality. This is another layer of fabric which will add insulation but would not be completely room darkening. It will help block light without making the room completely dark.
Does this material block out the heat?..have an east facing window and the sun beats in every morning. It gets quite hot. At this moment I have a quilted moving blanket draped to block out the sun's heat.
BEST ANSWER: It does a fabulous job of minimizing heat. I have 90% east & west facing windows. After lining all drapes & curtains, my electric bill dropped by over $50.00 a month for July, Aug & Sep., the screaming hit months in Arizona.
What is the thickness of fabric and does it look like thin upholstery foam?
BEST ANSWER: This is NOT thin upholstery foam. This is fabric with an insulating coating. One side has a soft feel, the other a nice fine textured fabric. I cannot tell you the thickness as I would need a gauge for that. It is not sheer, had a good body. I have used it for not only lining draperies and curtains but for lining items like mixer, blender, and toaster covers. It give nice body without bulk or heavy weight.
Does this fabric frey if not hemmed?
BEST ANSWER: Nope. I’ve always hemmed it but it doesn’t fray as it’s not a cotton
Does this lining need to be hemmed?
BEST ANSWER: I don't know that the lining "needed" to be hemmed, but as I was attaching it to some bought draperies that already had a thin lining, I only attached it at the top, I did hem the sides and bottom to give a nicer finished look. The material does not fray and was easy to work with.
can this be used as interlining for drapes, and table runners placemats?
BEST ANSWER: I used for lining drapes for a motor home for a client to help keep the Arizona heat out. Worked up very nice. I had not though about a table runner or place mat, but imagine it could. In fact I have some left over and may just try using for that. It would give it the extra body and keep it stable.
does anyone know if this lining can be spray glued to the window fabric and then sewn together into drapes? I'm replacing drapes that have sun rot and it looks like they have latex adhering to the actual drapery fabric. Thanks in advance!
BEST ANSWER: You could definitely do that!
Which of your fabrics is the most effective to block heat coming through a large glass window?
BEST ANSWER: This warm window fabric is the most heavy duty drapery lining we offer.
Does it keep out cold?
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it keeps out cold and insulates very well. I have been very happy with this product.
Does it help with noise in a room?
BEST ANSWER: Not really, but it’s appropriate for shade making instead of just plain lining fabric. It helps in heat retention.
Can this material be hand washed? I know dry cleaning is recommended, but too expensive for me.
BEST ANSWER: Hello, we cannot recommend anything other than dry cleaning for this item
One of my rooms ( one wall only) is facing the afternoon sun. The wall surface inside the room gets very warm (about 40 deg C ). This in turn makes the room warm till late at night. Can I paste this fabric on the inside wall surface to keep away the heat and hence reduce its warming effect within the room ?. Thank you for any suggestion.
BEST ANSWER: I don't believe this fabric would be very effective if used on the wall itself, only if used to block the sun in the windows.
Does this fabric have a shine to it or is it more of a matte finish?
BEST ANSWER: It is more matte.
I need to replace the worn out drapes that came with my place. Can this lining be spray glued to the fabric I'm going to use as the window fabric?
I immediately noticed a difference on a cold night, there was not the usual cold air coming from the window area.

This lining was perfect for my needs . I wanted to line two ready made sets of curtains. It has helped keep my room warmer and cut out some the light . It's not blackout lining.

Lining worked out great!
I just made drapes for a RV window. Fabric has a heavy feel but sewed beautifully and lined a lighter weight fabric, and pleater tape. Customer was very pleased how they turned out.

I bought it because the price was good-if I had seen it in the store I might have hesitated. 3 things are troublesome for me1) it’s very difficult to tell the themaform side. 2) it wrinkles easily 3) which requires ironing and if the iron is too hot ( which means hot enough to get steam) or you iron the wrong side the rubber beads off

Will always depend on this fabric for multiple projects.
Great product not only for drapery and curtains but other items. Nice weight to add body without bulk for mixer, blender and toaster covers. Have use it for years. I've even used it to line some dresser scarves. Many uses. Soft foam side and fine fabric side makes it very useful.
