How Boucle fabric is made? Made from multiple components, curls can offer a multi-colored, mottled look achieved by introducing a variety of colors during the production process. Weaving involves a multi-step process that uses two or more threads. First, twist one of the strands and then tighten it to keep strength and durability. Place the other strands loosely to create an uneven texture of curly hair. As you can see, the process of making a loop yarn is very intense, painstaking and can take a long time. However, rewards are always visible when the boucle fabric is created. And bouclé fabric is incredibly durable.
