What is Tulle?
A large part of our tulle is made of 100% polyester. Because polyester is hydrophobic and largely does not absorb water, polyester textiles will be hugely fast-drying. Polyester inner layers will also be very sweat-wicking.Polyester is simply used for everything: sweat-wicking underwear, all kinds of fleece, fibre insulation for clothing and sleeping bags, outer materials - both for clothing, sleeping bags, etc.The light, warm polyester materials (fleece and fibre insulation) also provide impressively high heat in relation to weight.
Tulle of nylon
Nylon is actually the name of a specific group of synthetic polymers with the chemical common name "polyamide". There are both natural and synthetic polyamides (e.g. wool and silk are technically polyamides), and nylon is by far the most widely used of the synthetic.In relation to outdoor clothing, nylon and polyamide will practically be synonyms. Nylon has an impressively high strength/weight ratio, and was initially manufactured as a synthetic substitute for silk. Today, nylon is especially common as an outer material for clothing, sleeping bags, backpacks and tents due to its low weight and high wear resistance.
