@nathil:  

Silk tulle is indeed very expensive, but it drapes beautifully and is very soft. Most tulles are made of nylon, which is stiff, and does not take dyes particularly well. I don’t know where you live, but you might try the iDye colours for synthetic fabrics: http://www.thedyeshop.co.uk/acatalog/

i have no personal experience with these dyes as I don’t like synthetic fabrics and don’t really use them. Have you considered a rayon tulle, which is less expensive, softer and will take dye quite easily? I would call your fabric shop and inquire if they can get you rayon/viscose tulle at a good price. Good luck!

I found an on-line source that sells 100% silk tulle in black and natural white for about $14.50 per metre. It’s $13.45 per yeard, which is slightly less than a metre. I think that is a great price! Here is the link: http://www.thaisilks.com/product_info.php?products_id=1303

Of course, considering that this post was made 8 months ago, it’s entirely possible that you have made your purchases and won’t need this.
