Double pleat curtains are also known as double pinch pleat curtains. They have a double fold at the top to create a double pleat. They are more contemporary than triple pleats and stack efficiently with a sleek line.
Double pleats are a good choice for patterned fabrics as less of the pattern is gathered into the fold. At Sue Whimster we make our double pleat curtains using 2 x fullness (twice as much fabric as the width of the pole or hanging system). Double pleat curtains can be made unlined, lined or lined and interlined.
This type of heading works well for all types of windows and looks great in drawing rooms, dining rooms, bedrooms and kitchens.
Top Tip! Double pleat heading uses less fabric than triple pleat heading.
