Can I purchase nettings and tulles at Spotlight?

Yes, Spotlight carries a large selection of nettings and tulles, from all-purpose netting such as nylon netting and astro net right through to bridal tulle and costume mesh. Nettings and tulles are often used as over and under skirts for instance for tutus or ballgowns, as well as bows, wraps and other accessories.

What can I make with netting and tulle fabrics?

As well as the well-known applications, such as tutus and large ballgowns or skirts, netting or tulle can also be used for a variety of other things such as for instance wedding bows and sashes for chairs, skirting for tables, costumes, decorations, bridal veils, fairy wings, gift-wrap, and even princess beds, curtains and room dividers.

The cheaper nylon netting can also be used around the home for things such as covering foodstuffs, protecting soft fruit and vegetables from animals, or topping flying insects from coming in through doors and windows. Astro net can be used for building projects, to protect plants, and other general uses around the home.

What is netting and tulle made from?

Netting and tulle can be made from different fibres including silk, but modern examples are usually made from Rayon or Nylon. They are woven in such a way that they are lightweight and airy, but still quite stiff and able to add both a floaty look as well as a stiffening structure for garments.

What else can I do with tulle or netting?

Tulle or netting can make great room dividers as it provides a measure of privacy while allowing light in, and because it is available in a number of colours it lends itself well to romantic bed curtains that are so popular with little girls, and which can double up as a pretty mosquito net at the same time. Here at Spotlight, various of the tulles on offer come in a double width, which makes sewing large curtains easier without the need for too many seams or joins. Tulle is also a great alternative to gift-wrap when combined with some pretty ribbon or fresh flowers, and can be used in a variety of craft projects.

How do I care for tulle fabric?

Tulle can be spot-cleaned (always try an unobtrusive spot first if possible to see that there will be no colour changes) or washed by hand or in the washing machine. Due to the possibility of the mesh fabric hooking on something and tearing, specialist recommend washing it between two towels (if washing by hand) or inside a pillowcase or specialist laundry bag for delicate items such as lingerie. Let tulle dry naturally, preferably while lying flat or hanging depending on the item.

Does Spotlight sell other fabrics as well?

Yes, netting and tulle are just a very small section of the cast range of fabrics on offer at Spotlight, which includes dressmaking and tailoring fabrics, curtain and blind fabrics, upholstery fabrics, craft fabrics, general purpose fabrics and specialist fabrics. Most of the fabrics on offer at Spotlight are available by the metre, but some, such as for instance quilting fabrics, can also be sold in pre-cut pieces. You will find the details in the individual product descriptions of each product.
