Do not order multiple panels
This product was returned. I ordered 4 packages (8 panels) and they were not from the same lot, nor the same country. The colors from one package of panels to another were so different.
I recommend that Linen Source watch their quality control and have their shipping employees educated on style #'s and lot #'s before shipping.
Sad because the quality and price were good.

Okay, but know what you're buying!
I bought the 160x84 pair of grommet-top panels in chocolate, for a bedroom, and am happy with the result. However, quality control on these panels is not up to par. There were a lot of dye lines (I used magic marker to blend them in) and pulled threads in the fabric; and the side hems were off the straight grain of the fabric, making a pleat in the hem that could not be straightened or ironed out. I expected to have to press the curtains, since they would come packaged. And there were a lot of wrinkles. But there were also four creases in each panel that required extra care, including some dampening and heavy steaming, to get them out. In order not to scorch the acrylic backing, I had to be VERY careful with this step. If you're putting these curtains in a window that doesn't get a lot of scrutiny, go for it. The price is good and the fabric is heavy enough to take a bit of abuse. But I wouldn't use them in a livingroom or anywhere that people might come close enough to see their flaws.

Attractive; Good Value
We use these drapes to cover a fairly large, translucent, glass-block window in the master bathroom. The primary purpose was not privacy but to keep out cold in the winter and heat in the summer; which they seem to be doing satisfactorily, thus far. I believe, however, that something with more of an air-tight fit (like a Roman shade) would be more effective -- but far more expensive (and, logistically, wouldn't quite work in our particular case). These drapes are attractive and complement the overall interior decor of our home (a contemporary take on Mission/Arts and Crafts). The grommet attachments made them easy to mount and are also a good choice for a bathroom or other moist area. The only negative thing I can say about them is that they arrived with a number of creases, due to packaging. We washed and dried them (which was easy to do in a standard home washer and dryer) but still had to iron them to take our the resultant wrinkles.

I ordered several window panels for a family room. When the panels arrived, one had faded streaks down the middle, several had blue blotches of dye throughout the panel, and one set was completely different from the ones I ordered. The background color is also very yellow rather than beige.
I am very disappointed and am sending them back!!!

Very nice weight and look
These fit perfectly for a medium weight drape that helps with insulation as well as light blocker. Nice look too.

Nice to look at
Love the curtains I bought. I can tell they are going to be an added insulation during both the summer & the Winter & will give privacy. They were purchased for a bedroom. Very pleased.
The reason I gave them a 4 star rating instead of the 5 is because I ordered WHITE & I believe they sent white but to me they are more off-white then a true white. Going to keep them because of the quality.
