Yarn Glossary: Bouclé

I am so excited to bring Bouclé in as a seasonal limited edition base for our winter tonal palette! This is such a unique yarn and I can't wait to share it with you!

A little bit about Bouclé

Bouclé is a light weight 3 DK yarn though it behaves a bit more like a sport. Its fiber content is 100% superwash merino wool and is spun in a conical shape that fills out stitches offering a squishy texture and feel.

At 240 yds per skein, the options are endless and the value is lovely!

When swatched, the row count is much higher than a typical DK so this is good to keep in mind when planning projects!

What should I make in Bouclé?

I'm so glad you asked! We have a few patterns coming out in this yarn for our Winter Lookbook, starting with this week's pattern - the Bouclé Shawls in BOTH knitting and crochet!

I have these shawls worked up in several colorways to showcase the stunning texture in both crafts - I can't even pick a favorite sample because they're all so beautiful.

I love this pattern for its simplicity when working it up but also because when finished it feels like a fleece blanket or something equally cozy... but it looks SO much more chic than if you were to wrap yourself in your couch throw!

When can we get Bouclé?

Bouclé is available only with the Winter Tonal palette! We wanted to do something special for this season and after seeing so much Bouclé style texture in home decor fabrics and furnishings. I knew this could translate to yarn so when I found this texture-palooza in yarn from our favorite bare yarn supplier... I started dreaming about the winter tonals in this texure!

Care Instructions

High texture yarn usually requires a bit of extra care in order to maintain its loft. We find that our new Bouclé base yarn is surprisingly durable and holds up well to wear. That being said, we always recommend washing knits gently with our house made wool wash in room temperature water.

I hope you all love this base as much as I do! It's a wonderful addition to your stash in any color from the winter tonal lineup.
