Default 1960s insulated drapery lining

I found a bit of this mira lon insulated lining in my goodies. The only thing my research yielded was newspaper ads from the 1960s from drapery stores and Sears. Does anyone know this product or if it may contain anything hazardous? Asking around several different groups I belong to - hoping someone has seen or heard of it. TIA!

Image-googling shows lots of stuff on rolls, but all the pages are a .cz URL. Nothing in English. And it seems to be showing several different kinds of stuff. Foam, batting, something that may be fabric, and clear plastic. Sorry.

One of those ads says that it is made of 100% cotton.

I'm pretty sure that my grandma used the stuff to line her curtains that she made.

Thanks for looking for it for me! I didn't see that ad Mousehound. No fiberglass or asbestos or other nasties means I could make insulated lunch sacks or whatever! Yay!

Sounds like mold waiting to happen especially in cold climates with condensation on the windows.
