I bought this curtain to use as intended for covering the door and found the length is a perfect fit
I would not say that these are heavy weight curtains but medium weight... To give them a fair test, when I closed the curtains in daylight, it was quite cloudy outside and the sun wasn't beaming through the window. I put my hand behind the curtain, about 5 inches away from the material and I could see the outline of my hand, but it did a good job of darkening the room. Although I wouldn't say it's a complete blackout, I gave it 5 stars because of the quality, with good thickness and stiching makes it exellent value for money. I have ordered a second for the back door and will be ordering 2 more in red to replace my living room curtains.
As others have stated, the weave pattern is not very clear in the picture and the material is a little corse but the lining on the back feels soft.
Arrived by Royal Mail on the 2nd day after ordering, with free cloth carrier bag.
