A multiple thread mix of two or three yarn types divided into two thread streams which structure colour and yarn interactions for purl and knit face. A wool component melds a fabric rich in colour & texture, though light and diaphanous.

Boucle has two variations.

Glistening with a viscose/synthetic crepe component
which accents the fabric with glistening colour and increases drape. Or Frost which uses a fine synthetic snarl yarn as component which creates more body and accents the velvety texture of wool boucle.
