Chelsea Thermal Pinch-Pleated Panels
Not enough fabric to pleat.
These drapes are very stiff so they don't hang right. Plus they don't have enough fabric to lay flat when you pull them over the window let alone to lay in pleats or gathers. I have had a lot of pinch pleated drapes and the fabric should fall soft into rolls and ripples from the pinched pleats at the top. These just lay flat and really stiff. They are so stiff that if you try to pull them closed over the window they push the hooks off of the rod at the top ad when you try to put them back on all the others come off because the fabric is not only stiff but there insnt enough of it to hang nicely. I didnt want to spend a fortune on drapes but not only that, It is really hard to find pinch pleated drapes anymore. I was so excited when I found these but man was I disappointed. Order twice the width of the window you are ordering them for...they do not even reach across the front of mine. If I pull them over the window they are completely flat not soft and kind of gathered the way you think of pinch pleated drapes and then they dont cover the sides of the window at all. Just not enough fabric and ot a soft flowing fabric.

More dark grains
I got the natural, this curtain is thinner than others I purchased at Blair. But still can not be seen through, its just lighter weight also there was way more dark grains than what was shown on the web, so its not very sandy at all. Still nice curtains and they do come in pairs, and they are thermal back to keep the hot sun out.
