insul bright for drapery?

Posted by k40aren (My Page) on

I am considering using Insul Bright for lining about 10 very large drapes for my living room. It seems to be very quilted and appropriate for things like pot holders and am concerned about how the drapes will hang with such a quilted lining.
If someone can suggest a better lining, I would really appreciate it. We have many large south and west facing windows, so I need something that will also reflect radiant heat, like mylar or something. Is there another mylar lining product available?
I would really appreciate any advice on this.

RE: insul bright for drapery?

I've been looking at a product called Warm Window for making insulated roman shades. It has a layer of mylar. I'm not sure if it is recommended for drapery but it is expensive. Joann's has it for $29.99/yd and I found another fabric store that had it for $24.99/yd. There are many drapery lining products out there - the store that had warm window for $24.99 also had linings for as low as $3.99/yd.
