I know that wool can be died with cool-aid, but I've got some nylon mesh tulle fabric, (slightly off-topic, i know, but I figured this is the best spot for someone that would know) It's white, and needs to be a sort of turquoise blue. the color can be seen here: http://www.millenniumpromise.org/site/PageServer?pagename=malaria_main&JServSessionIda004=w4s70cbed1.app12d
it's in the picture at the top of the page. I want to make the tulle look like the bednets for a charity dinner. thanks for reading.

I don't think you'd be able to dye it as nylon is a plastic and to dye plastic it has to be done in the production stage.

Nylon can be dyed with acid dyes.
