This true red, super cosy wool bouclé fabric is perfect for creating its namesakes cape as well as a plethora of other fabulous garments and soft furnishings too.
Red Riding Hood Bouclé was woven in Italy for a top British designer. The combination of superfine yarns on the warp and a chunky bouclé yarn across the weft produces a textural fabric with fabulously thick curls (the reverse displays less of the curls and more of the warp yarns). The selvedges on this beautiful fabric are fringed and will make fantastic details for your bespoke creations. Reassuringly cosy but not too heavy or dense, this festive red fabric with a high wool content has a lovely soft drape quality due to its slightly open weave and will make wonderful garments which you will want to envelop yourself in and will have movement and good malleability.
Red Riding Hood Bouclé is stable width wise and lengthwise and has some ease and movement across the bias due to the slightly open weave. The brushed bouclé yarn gives this cosy woollen fabric a soft feel and also obscures the open area's.Garments with more structured details will need lining and may need interfacing and stabilisers, we recommend you test these on a sample piece first.
Ideal styles to make are coatigans and cardigans, hoodies, swing coats and capes. For structured types this will make fabulous Chanel style jackets (be sure to use the frayed selvedge for classic Chanel detailing, perhaps combine with velvet ribbon for a truly festive style?). Long cardigan styles will look stylish and chic if you add scarf / tie details to the neck and with clever cutting you can use the fringed selvedges around the hemline and leading edges.
If your sewing skills are not advanced to dressmaking then fear not! Red Riding Hood Bouclé will make super easy scarves shawls ponchos and wraps, use those fringed selvedges and you are ready to go!
