Sheer Fabric (2.0 – 3.0 x Fullness)
A sheer curtain is made from translucent fabric, such as a loosely woven polyester voile. Sheer curtains allow a majority of light to be transmitted through the fabric, with the fabric weave providing a basic level of UV protection while retaining maximum visibility outward through the curtain.
Sheer curtains provide a great level of privacy throughout the day as most sheer fabrics will allow people inside the home to see outside while preventing people outside the home from seeing directly into the home.
Due to the loose weave in sheer fabrics, these types of curtains offer very little in the way of heat insulation or privacy during the night
