Default STINKY tulle

I dont really know where to post this, but this is my first guess. Does anyone know why tulle smells like fish?????? Its driving me nuts! I bought some from UB and it just reaked like fish!! I thought maybe it was just a bad batch or something but I bought some off the bolt at Joanns fabric and it smells even worse! I havent done anything with it yet because it stinks so bad. I made a tutu with some tulle from joanns about 2 months ago and hung it in the bathroom to steam the wrinkles out and afterwards it brought out the fish smell and stunk SOOOOO bad I had to just toss it outside because it stunk up the whole living room! It seems like some colors stink worse because the maroon and dark green I used yesterday dident stink. I hope someone knows what Im talking about! I have a sensitve nose, but my hubby can smell it too. I dont feel comfortable selling anything that smells that way!!!

LoL I was wondering this same thing. I made a tutu last week and thought I was going to die. I have no idea why it smells like that, and it's disgusting. I sprayed mine with fabreze and steamed it...that helped a little.

I've noticed some of my tulle smells too, but it's more of a pee smell instead of a fishy smell. I try to febreze it but it doesn't ever fully come out.
