                  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.

                                    Fantastic product. Ordered it on line - next day delivery to the store. Very easy processing.
                                    Provides a very stable base when lining very soft textured curtain material. Makes an outstanding curtain.

                                          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.

                                                      Used this to replace fabric of roof window blind, about a metre square. Easy to handle and sew and virtually non-fray so haven't gone to extra work and expense of using a spray on fabric stiffener.
                                                      Bought in-store locally and I'm glad I bought extra to use in caravan with stick and sew hook-and-loop tape.

                                                              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.

This Lining is just the fabric on a roll and sold by the meter, the roll is 137cm (54") wide and you select in the drop down box how many meters that you need. We do also sell ready made curtain linings that simply attach to the back of pre-made curtains here: http://www.dunelm-mill.com/shop/curtains/curtain-linings/ I hope this helps.

Other stuff I've looked at on other websites describes this type of material as ' 3 pass' which is described as plasticky or rubbery. Is your blackout material the same as I don't want the rubbery stuff? Or is all blackout material the 3 pass type? Thank you
