(pronounced tool)

Mention tulle, and images of billowing, diaphanous, feminine dresses probably come to mind. Yes, this fine, lightweight, sheer kind of lace, mesh or light netting is often used in the design and construction of ballerinas’ tutus, high school girls’ prom gowns, and blushing brides’ wedding veils. However, it can also be used in window treatments, event draping and decorating, and even gift-wrapping. This fabric – which is often starched – can be made of various fibers, including silk, nylon, and rayon.
