Yeah, I came across that info while searching for tulle online, but can't for the life of me remember where I found the site. I made my 7wk old a tutu out of both. The main color is nylon and the glitter/sparkle tulle is polyester. The one I'm making for my 19month old will be out of polyester.

Can't wait to see your pictures!!

I think that's the kind of tulle I bought from HL 10yrd for $2.99, but got it 50% for $1.50. It is very rough and I realized from working with it, if you want the "knot site" to be small like the rest of the tulle, that you want to bunch it tightly in the middle and before you pull your knot tight. But I would only use this as add in and not an entire piece.
