fabric Bouclé

Bouclé refers both to a type of knotted, irregular novelty yarn and to the knitted or woven fabrics made from it. Bouclé fabrics are generally made from wool or cotton, with several colours or shades combined. In woven fabrics, loose and open weave structures are used to accentuate the features of the yarn.

fabric Bouclé

boucle

The word bouclé , which is French for ‘curled’ or ‘looped’, is used both for a type of yarn and for the knitted or woven fabrics made from it. The yarn is a so-called novelty yarn, rough and knotted with a unique visual effect made by wrapping one strand of irregular, loose-tension loops around a twisted core. Using this type of yarn results in a fabric structure of small curls and loops, which is so characteristic that the fabric itself is also referred to as bouclé rather than by the knit or weave construction.

Bouclé fabrics are generally made from wool or cotton, with several colours or shades combined. In woven fabrics, loose and open weave structures are used to accentuate the features of the yarn. A higher concentration of bouclé yarns results in a more pronounced loop effect. The irregular loops inherent in the yarn produce an all-over raised pile texture on the surface of the fabric. A bulkier and more heavily textured fabric will create a softer and rounder silhouette when made into a garment.

Bouclé fabrics are commonly used in coats, dresses, suits and jackets. The classic bouclé cardigan jacket debuted in Paris in 1954, inspired by menswear tailoring with a straight cut, four patch pockets, gold buttons and a contrasting trim.
