        I am hoping this blackout lining will keep my bedroom dark during dayligh hours. The material is heavy but it is easy to work with. The only downside is that it is not washable.

                This blackout lining is unlike any other I have bought. It is heavy and just like rubber. not easy to work with when the curtain fabric is lighter. Seems to have a life of its own, governing the action of the light weight curtain fabric laying over it. I just hope it does the job and will think very seriously before buying it again.

                    • Living Room

                    Ordered 16m of blackout material on click and collect. 23 hours later came the email saying 'your order is ready to collect'. Drove to Dunelm only to find out that nothing had happened at all, cut material cannot be prepared in advance! Had to start from scratch, spending just over an hour in the shop (including waiting for the staff to search for our order for 20 mins before they realised they hadn't prepared it). All in all, 25 hours completely wasted. If you want a length of material, please just drive there and buy it!

                      I ordered this product on line along with curtain material expecting the order to be ready for collection after 3 on the same day. When I went to collect the order the following day it was not ready and I was informed that fabric could not be ordered click and collect. I was not happy !

                                    I used this to stick over my bedroom window using Velcro. It does the job very well blocking out nearly all the light.
                                    Minor negatives are to do with the supply. It was not cut squarely. I assumed it was so when I cut it to size I found one end was too short. Make sure you cut all edges yourself.
                                    I was surprised it took the full 10 days to arrive.

                                            In these hot summer we got the blackout lining. When put on, to my surprise it really made my room blackout. Besides blocking all the heat waves it also provided good insulation from hot temps outside.

                                            I had these linings cut to size which was helpful. So i definitly liked the product.

                                              So far, seems to be doing the job of darkening my toddler's room. (Preventing early Summer rising!) I machine-sewed it to back of curtains. Fairly easy to tack into position etc but machine struggled a bit with the weight of it, difficult for it to grip as v smooth material. Haven't bothered to double-hem as looks v durable.

                                                  Bought 3 meters of this to line my eyelet curtains in the bedroom. There appears to be lots of ready made lining kits for tape-top curtains, but not much choice for eyelet. There was one eyelet ready made kit available at Dunelm, but the size wasn't right for me and I didn't like the fact that it came with cheap plastic hooks which you threaded through the eyelets, making them visible from the front. Material arrived, although delivery is quite slow, cut them to size and tacked them across the top. You don't need to hem the material as it's quite thick and cuts cleanly to size. Excellent purchase, wish I'd bought much sooner. No more waking up every morning at 4.30am, as soon as it gets light. Wish I'd bought weeks ago.

                                                            Bought this for my son's nursery with the nights and mornings getting lighter, it has made the room a lot darker. His curtains are tab top so some light still comes in over the top of the pole and sides which is to be expected but the blackout result of the fabric is excellent.

                                                                                • Bedroom

                                                                                I have used this to line nursery curtains and have found that it works well. The curtains are tab top so some light creeps in over the top but that was expected.

                                                                                Although quite a heavy duty fabric, my sewing machine coped fine without needing to change to a stronger needle.

                                                                                I was disappointed to find the fabric riddled with staples, however.

                                                                                Be sure to check the colour too before you cut. I ordered ecru but received white.

                                                                                Service and delivery comments:

                                                                                I was delighted to not only NOT receive the expected phone call I usually get from Dunelm Mill saying that my ordered product was not it stock, but to also receive the item a week earlier than expected.

                                                                                However, the fabric was the wrong colour. It wasn't such a huge deal and I needed to get on with the project quickly so I chose not to return the fabric.

                                                                                It's just a shame that, for me at least, Dunelm Mill never manage to get it quite right.
