I've never had a problem with them. It sounds like you got a bad roll or two. Let them know... They should send you out a new roll.

As for stiffening, first get the tutu in the shape you want by pulling the tulle out straight. Then you can use aerosol starch or even hairspray. Spray it lightly and let it air dry. If you can hang it in the sun, then do so. If it's not stiff enough then repeat.
