i was looking for a lining for curtain for our nursery which has two outside walls, so cold in the winter. but also gets the sun all day, so hot in the summer! i saw the thermal lining on a different website but it was alot more expensive then a normal lining fabric. Then i saw this one and couldnt believe the price! i was a little worried that other reviews said it wasnt reversible and the white side (the side i was to use) was rubbery. I thought i would give it a try for the price anyway. I was expecting something similar to the ikea blackout blind kind of feel, that thick rigid feel. But when it arrived earlier then estimated (always nice) i was very happy with the quality and feel. You can use either side and isnt rubbery at all. I would say it is the same quality you would expect from large home stores for a fraction of the price. i will use again to make curtains for my daughters room.
