Default Tulle for TuTu's.....

Do any of you purchase your tulle from places such as Hobby Lobby , Joannes , etc? I don't have the resourses to order online , but I have read that you can order softer tulle online. The stiffer tulle like I can get locally makes them a little fluffier I think , but they tangle and crush easier. I also saw one that looked and felt like a very fine netting , but when I looked in the stores all they had was netting with the big holes. So I'm just curious , do any of you just use the plain old tulle that you can get locally , even at wal-mart? TIA

I've used hobby lobby tulle in a pinch.

If you want to order online, I recommend Nashville Wraps.
It's made in the USA and excellent quality.

if you are looking for a softer tulle in stores i would suggest trying the tulle in the wedding dept at HL. Its not the softest tulle but its softer than the tulle in the fabric dept. HTH.

I use the tulle from HL all the time. It sometimes does get tangled but I think they turn out nice.

The chain hobby stores all carry imported (Chinese) tulle fabric. The knit is less tight than domestic tulle and the result is a 'scratchier' feeling. Also check the labels carefully, the manufacturers won't certify it as fire retardant because of a solvent they use in the finishing process that can be extremely flammable.

There are only a couple of domestic mills still producing Tulle. We are aware of 3 major ones and our primary mill has been continuously making tulle for close to a century. The tulle is rigid enough to produce the fullness and 'poofiness' that you expect in a tutu, but is soft to the touch on children's skin.

We also carry a fabric called Diamond Hole Net, which is a 'stiff' version of tulle. It is used for purposes where it's important to hold a shape - such as dance tutus, wedding chair bows, etc. It's very rigid, but not nearly as soft... however, most dancers will also be in a leotard as well, so that doesn't affect them.

I used to order mine from TRR, I've used the stuff from Walmart and it wasn't too bad.

Walmart *used* to sell USA-tulle, but last time I saw any it was from China...
Check the labels before you buy, just in case

This tulle is also a better price than that sold in the fabric department, and since it is considered a "wedding" item, this is on sale even when the tulle in the fabric dept isnt!!!
