Tulle (English pronunciation: /tuːl/ tool) is a lightweight, very fine netting, which is often starched. It can be made of various fibres, including silk, nylon, and rayon. Tulle is most commonly used for veils, gowns (particularly wedding gowns), and ballet tutus. The name comes from Tulle, a city in the southern central region of France. Tulle was well known as a center of lace and silk production in the 18th century, and early tulle netting probably originated in this French city. Tulle netting certainly appeared earlier in Parisian ballet costume than in most other nations, suggesting that tulle netting may have been more readily available there than elsewhere. – From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
I thought this video about the different types of tulle fabric on the market today would be particularly helpful to parents sewing for Halloween or tutu’s for ballet. Tulle varies in quality because it is made from a wide variety of different types of materials. Some of these materials are quite flammable.
