Boucle Yarn

If you're looking for a yarn that's a little different and fun to work with then try using Bouclé yarn for your next project. Bouclé, which means 'curled' or 'ringed' in French, has characteristic tight loops with a fleece-like appearance.

In this case, novelty does not mean a sacrifice on quality. It is generally made from natural fibers such as wool or alpaca, which together with the looped texture gives it a heavenly softness that knits up into beautifully cozy sweaters. The yarn also makes for standout accessories such as scarves and mittens.
