Q:

How do you get wrinkles out of tulle?

A:

Tulle is a material that is utilized in formal attire. Steam is the only way to remove wrinkles from tulle. You can use a steamer, steam the garment in a dryer or use the steam setting on an iron (without touching it to the fabric).

  1. Use a steamer

    The steamer should come with a hanger pole to hang the garment. If there is not one, you can hang the garment on a door. Fill the steamer with water, and turn it on. Wait about 10 minutes for the water to start evaporating in the steamer. Then, use the steamer wand to steam the garment.

  2. Put the garment in the dryer

    Lightly spray the garment with water, and place it in the dryer on the low setting for 3 to 5 minutes. Afterwards, hang the garment, and the wrinkles will disappear.

  3. Use an iron

    Fill the iron with water. Set the iron on the steam option, and wait for the water to start evaporating from the iron. Hold the iron above the material without making contact, and pass the steam over the wrinkles as you would with a steamer wand.

    What is the difference between knitted and woven fabric?

    A:

    Knit fabrics contain loops of fibers that allow the material to stretch in one or both directions, while woven fabrics only stretch on the bias. In knit fabrics, a continuous loop of yarn is used to construct the material, giving it a braided appearance. In woven fabrics, multiple strings of yarn cross each other, creating the appearance of a basket weave.
