What about the curtains headings ?

For the grommet curtains:

Moondream curtains are made with 8 grommets. The diameter of the grommets is 1.6 inch (4 cm) and they are spaced every 5.11 inches (13 cm). When the curtains are folded back, the width of the panel is approximately 5.9 inches (15 cm). Plan to leave 1 inch (2.5 cm) between the top of the curtain rail and your ceiling. This space will be taken up by the material above the grommets.


For pencil pleat curtains:
Moondream curtains are sewn with 2.8 inches (7 cm) pencil pleat curtain tape. Pencil pleat consists of tightly gathered folds.

For Moondream blackout curtains (without a lining) :
All our blackout curtains (without a lining) are machine washable at 86°F.For the Moondream thermal and sound insulation curtains :
Made predominantly from polyester but containing 0.01% aluminium, Moondream thermal and sound insulation curtains must be dry-cleaned. For small spots or marks you can use a slightly damp sponge to clean curtain fabric and linings.

 

How do I hem my curtains?

All our Moondream curtains are delivered with a heat-activated thermal adhesive strip, enabling you to adjust the dimensions of your curtains to fit your windows.

N.B.: Given the weight of the sound insulation curtain (6.61 pounds), we recommend adding a few stitches post-application to ensure the thermal adhesive strip stays in place.

 

How to attach a lining to the back of your curtain ?
  1. Start 0.7 inches from the edge
  2. Lay the strip flat
  3. Peel off the paper to stick the strip
  4. Attach the lining to the self-gripping strip

Tip: Sew one stitch at each end of the curtain so as to fix the strip.

Can I use the Moondream thermal curtains in winter? In summer?

For winter: we suggest our blackout thermal curtains
The Moondream thermal curtains are made with a blackout or dim-out fabric and are lined with our winter thermal lining.


For summer and winter: we suggest our thermal sheers
Moondream has developed the Bi-Cool thermal lining, an exclusive process allowing this new fabric to offer effective technical performances, regardless of the side of the lining exposed to heat radiation. Thanks to the dual action of the Bi-Cool by Moondream lining, you are protected from the cold (and save up to 46% on heating costs), and from the heat (achieving a difference in temperature of up to 4°C (MB: Farenheit) when compared to the outdoors).

 

How to install the hooks on my pencil pleat curtains?
  1. Insert the hook inside the braid every 3.4 – 6 inches.
  2. Before hanging your curtain on the rod, you must frown your curtain. To frown, you must pull on the yarns on both sides of the curtain. Knot the yarn to create a stop for the frown, do NOT cut the yarns. Place the frowned curtains on opposite ends of the rod. Your curtain width frowned must measure around the half of your rod - This way, with your 2 curtains the entire window will be covered. If you choose to use only one curtain, frown it according to the length of your rod.
  3. Hang your curtain through this hook inside the rings on your rod.
