Fabric Sample Cards are listed on the Main Fabrics page.

Net & Tulle Color Chart
The charts are very rough and somewhat incomplete, and are meant to be used as very general guides only.



A few words (and caveats) about Net and Tulle standards:
We purchase Net and Tulle from several different manufacturers and mills. Each manufacturer and mill has their own color chart and naming convention. Even within one mill, dye lots of the same color may vary from shipment to shipment. We have also found the stiffness and widths of the nets may vary from shipment to shipment, from mill to mill, and even from color to color. We have no control over these factors - the mills are not always consistent in their widths or dye lots or color availability.

Classical Tutu Makers, to make a Classical Tutu 'stand-out flat':
The stiffer the net, the less of it you need to use - the softer the net, the more of it you need to use. Stiffness is generally indicated by the denier (or tex) - higher usually means stiffer. Tulle is softer than Tutu Net, and Horsehair Net is stiffer than Tutu Net.



Please be sure of the amount and color you need when you order.
Once cut, it's yours, and cannot be returned.


Special Shipping Note for All Fabric Customers
Our shipping rates are 'close estimates' only, and are based on order-value. We may recalculate your actual shipping costs as necessary depending on the amount of fabric you order, the package weight and size, and the destination of your order. For instance, a bolt of 54-inch Tutu Net is about 4 pounds folded on a board, while a bolt of 60-inch Tutu Net is over 4 pounds but rolled full-width on a tube. And either may incur additional charges for being a 'light-weight/over-size' package.

Our access to many of the largest New York, North Carolina, Los Angeles, and European fabric mills, houses, and importers allows us to order from a wide-ranging selection, and we are always adding new and exciting variations to our inventory.

So, give us a call if you're looking for a costuming fabric or a color you don't see on these pages - if we don't have it, we can usually find it for you pretty quick. (Minimum order amounts will depend on the fabric and the mill, and may range from a few yards to a full bolt.)



Special Shipping Notes for International (non-USA) Customers
The 60-inch Tutu Net and 60-inch Domestic Tulle come to us rolled full-width on 60- to 62-inch tubes. The Multi-Color Metallic Net is rolled full width on 54- 56-inch tubes.
If ordering any of these fabrics 'By-the-Bolt', due to bolt width, your shipping options are limited (and rather expensive). For all non-USA destinations, the USPS imposes package-size restrictions, and other carriers may impose other restrictions. You should contact us for shipping options, estimated cost, and limitations.
In general, it will probably be less expensive to order 'by the yard', at the 'per yard' price. But please note, the fabric will simply be folded into a box, as neatly as possible. For some destinations, we may have to cut the fabric into more than 1 piece, and ship in more than 1 box.
