BOUCLE YARN

A bloucle yarn is a novelty yarn with a soft, but rough surface. It is characterized by tight loops projecting from the base of the yarn at regular intervals, which are tied in place by a binder yarn. This novelty effect is created when one of the yarn plies is slacked during the twisting process, causing it to twist and form a loop. The size of the loops may vary, based on the speed of the rollers on the yarn twisting equipment. Boucle yarns are used to create knitted fabrics, as well as woven fabrics used in coats/suits and throws in the home furnishings market.
