BOUCLÉ, Looped, Crêpe, Flemmé Yarns


Bouclé. There are two types of bouclé yarn: The first, is a fancy yarn with an irregular pattern of curls and/or loops, which give the finished farbric a nubby surface. The second type of bouclé is a twisted blend consisting of a basic, core fiber and effect-yarn wrapped around it so as to produce loops on the surface.
Crêpe yarn is characterized by a dull, crinkled or puckered surface obtained by the use of either hard-twist weft yarn, the use of yarns twisted to varying tensions, or crêpe wave (in fabrics), in wich a fiber randomly floats during the weave. It can be made of various types of fibers, including silk, cotton, wool, manufactured fibers and blends.
