Sheer shades are a sophisticated fusion of a blind and a shade. Because they are enclosed on the front and rear by a soft, delicate
layer of thin fabric, the soft inner vanes act like blinds, tilting open and closed. To lift the shade, a continuous action shuts the
vanes, exactly like a blind, placing the two outer layers of transparent fabric flat against the vanes, then the shade rolls up into the
top rail, similar to a roller shade, to clear the window. Privacy and light control are obtained by drawing the shade and closing the
vanes. Light seeps in gently through the outer layers of thin cloth when the shade is down and the vanes are open.
