Is tulle and netting fabric the same thing?
The short answer is that tulle is a type of net fabric. Netting is a nylon fabric that has looped warp and weft fibres that create holes in the fabric and is quite stiff, making it useful for creating structure. Essentially, tulle is a special type of netting that has a lower denier and has a softer and finer appearance because the individual fibres are thinner. Netting fabrics, bridal tulle and other similar fabrics all come in different weights and are used for different parts of garments depending on the look you desire. Tulle usually has holes that are much smaller than a nylon netting and is able to be manipulated more easily. Netting is more commonly used in under garments and a fine silk wedding tulle for overlays and the outer of the gown.
What are the benefits of using tulle and net fabrics?
Tulle and netting are very versatile fabrics and can be manipulated easily when creating dresses or gowns. Tulle is most commonly known as the outer layers of a ballerinas tutu and the under layers that give form and structure are a stiffer nylon netting. When a garment needs to be voluminous, netting and tulle are your secret weapons. Tulle will drape well as a bridal veil or train and stiff nylon netting fabric will create a foundation for a petticoat, or used inside garments as interfacing. Tulle is also a fantastic way to make embellishments when it is embroidered or beaded.
