I don’t have a source for silk tulle, but I did google it real quick. I don’t know what color you are looking for, but I found some in white on Amazon for 99 cents/yd. It is 54″ wide. It looks like there are a lot of other listings for it too, so you should be able to find some on that site. I have never worked with it, but I have worked with regular tulle and am working with it now. If the silk tulle is anything like the regular tulle, it will fray really easily. When you make your veil, I suggest sewing a rolled hem on it before you try to gather it and wear it. I have found it to be not the easiest fabric to work with.

Here is the link to the listing on Amazon:

@wellykiwi: Oops, sorry, I didn’t read the full description.

I made my veil and the lace for it was over a hundred dollars a yard. I finally found it on eBay for about $6.00/yd. I couldn’t believe my find. I got it and it is definately the real thing. I just don’t think the seller knew what they had. I hope you find yours. It is an amazing thing when you do. And if all else fails, you could always purchase the fake stuff and wash it on gentle, so it would be more flowey.

I ended up using tulle from Joanns; used a coupon, and Beaded Alencon lace that I purchased from eBay.

You could steam your fabric without washing it, but it would more than likely go back to it’s stiff self. The best way is to put it in the washer on the gentlest cycle you have; I have a hand wash cycle that I use, then put it in the dryer with a fabric softener sheet. That will soften it up for you and it will also make sure it doesn’t stick where it shouldn’t on your wedding day. You can get unscented fabric softener. If you wash it, make sure you untangle it, if it has tangled, before you put it in the dryer.
