For some reason I expected it to be a canvas type of material so was a little surprised when it was a soft material. I thought it was a blanket at first! But I’m happy about that because when we fold it up it doesn’t get fold marks like a canvas screen would. It also means it’s really portable. I love that it’s stretchable too; we can really make sure the screen is taut. I have two 3meter wooden dowels with hooks and attach the screen with the dowels at the top and bottom then hang it in our garden. There are plenty of eyelets for you to tie the screen in any way you like to make sure your picture is nice and clear. We initially hung the screen on our porch but our neighbours porch lights were affecting the image so we had to move it to a wall where there was no light behind the screen in order to see the screen. Overall I’m really happy with the purchase!
