Furniture and accessories made of bouclé wool and teddy fur are experiencing a real renaissance. What are the characteristics of these fabrics and how to bring this trend into the interior?
The name of this material comes from the French language and means something curly. Wool bouclé has a very interesting spatial finish. It consists of decoratively twisted yarn with loops. The number and type of coarsening depends on the type of yarn used. This gives it a characteristic fleshy texture. Although bouclé wool in a single, usually subdued color has gained the greatest popularity, it can be woven from threads in many colors. Then beautiful multicolored combinations appear on the fabric. Bouclé is an extremely cozy fabric, however, it has great air circulation and wicks away moisture well. So you don't have to worry about discomfort when using furniture lined with this material during the summer. Bouclé also requires no special care. All you need to do is vacuum it with a machine set to the lowest power setting and a fabric brush.

Traditionally, teddy is made of sheep or lamb fur. Fortunately, synthetic alternatives are available on the market. They are mostly made of cotton yarn and synthetic polyacrylic yarn, and then dyed in the colors of your choice. One of the advantages of synthetic teddy fur is its ease of care. It is enough to simply wash it in the washing machine.
