Bouclé yarn is a novelty yarn known for its characteristic looped appearance. In fact, ‘bouclé’ derives from the French word ‘boucler’ which means ‘to curl’.
This distinctive yarn is produced by combining at least 2 strands and ensuring one strand is loose enough to form the ringlets. Bouclé can be made using different fibres and the loops tend to vary in size. Using a yarn with larger loops can create a bulky, more textured effect.
Indulge in some of this yarn and make a project that’s guaranteed to stand out. Whether you’re creating something for yourself, a loved one or for charity, a garment made with bouclé won’t be forgotten any time soon.
