Sunflower Bouclé is a medium / heavy weight wool mix fabric that's bursting with mellow autumnal colour, like the sunflowers (which inspired its name) that we see in late summer, displaying rich golden/mustard hues that fill you with sunny warmth. We have been seeing this uplifting colour range for some time now all over fashion and interiors so are confident this beauty will not disappoint.
Sunflower Bouclé is cleverly constructed with a closely woven fine cotton base layer that is then woven through on the weft with a 100% wool, brushed, chunky bouclé yarn. The effect produced by the yarn and weave combinations is of rows of uniformly sized bouclé bobbles with a delightful evenly brushed texture on the face side. The reverse of the fabric displays more of the cotton base with the wool yarn appearing as small uniform stitches throughout. The close weave construction provides excellent width and lengthwise stability and the soft bouclé yarn enables a cosy and enveloping drape quality. Put all these redeeming features to use for a range of warming A/W makes.
Ideal patterns to start with are: Sew Different - Cocoon Coat, Biker Jacket Cardi, Sew Over It - Coco. Paper Cut Patterns - Sapporo Coat. The Assembly Line- Wrap Jacket. For something a little more advanced Republic de Chiffon - Yeta Jacket is a fab blouson style with an '80s vibe, the soft drape of Sunflower Bouclé will really show of the soft blouson style.
This expertly woven fabric was used by a top retail fashion house where you would pay a premium for garments made in this beauty, so now you can make those garments to your own specifications at a fraction of the price.
Don't forget all those excellent accessories you can make hats, caps, berets, bags and neck warmers too. For quick soft furnishing projects, try throws and simple envelope style cushions, the beautiful frayed selvedge on the fabric can be showcased as a design detail!
