Nothing says ladylike quite like bouclé. Maybe because it is so synomous with Chanel. No one does it chicer than Chanel. But my friends and I are everyday folk who don’t necessarily have Chanel in our closets (more’s the pity!). We do have a sense of adventure and aa love for warmer fabrics. That spirit inspired this post about bouclé. But before we get started… what is bouclé?

Bouclé is a kind of novelty yarn. It is a yarn with a length of loops of similar size which can range from tiny circlets to large curls. To make bouclé, at least two strands are combined, with the tension on one strand being much looser than the other as it is being plied. with the loose strand forming the loops and the other strand as the anchor. B can also refer to the fabric made from this type of yarn, especially fabric that maintains the looped appearance. (From Wikipedia)

Bouclé is not to be confused with tweed… there’s a difference. See what I mean?
