Sumptuously textured, this medium-heavy weight wool knit deadstock is an absolute treat! We're calling this a boiled bouclé because of its dense texture - it feels slightly felted, and the cut edges won't unravel which is perfect when you want a clean yet unfinished cut edge. On a knit backing, it has a gentle amount of stretch, which will give you a dose of stretch and comfort for close-fitting tailored jackets and coats. With a soft yet structured drape, we suggest this for all soft tailoring projects, from jackets to skirts and dresses. Fully opaque, it does not require a lining (but you may want to add one for comfort.)

TRY IT WITH:

Always pretreat fabric before sewing to remove chemical sizing from the manufacturing process. Pre-washing also gives you a better sense of the true drape and handfeel of a fabric. We recommend washing and drying fabric in the same way you intend to wash your finished garment. Be sure to separate brights and colours, as some dyes and prints may run the first few times you wash them.

Wool should never be washed in a machine; the agitation will felt the fibers. Some lightweight wools can be gently hand washed using cool water and gentle detergent like Woolite. To dry, wrap in dry towels and compress to soak up excess moisture before hanging to dry. It’s best to hang over a rack rather than on a line since the weight of wet wool will stretch and distort. Heavier wools like coating should not be washed, but it is very important to remove as much shrinkage as possible before sewing. While it can be taken to the drycleaner for professional steam-shrinking, here’s an easy home hack for less delicate wool. Fill your dryer with damp towels and tumble dry on medium for 20-30 minutes. The steam from the towels will shrink and condition the wool. Use a warm iron with lots of steam when pressing; a press cloth will help prevent "shine" left from a too hot iron.
