We wanted to create a boucle effect short but often found that with the fabric being made with wool it would either to be warm or not have good enough durability to last wear after wear whilst still retaining the boucle effect. To counter this we have used a custom brushed outer fabric which undergoes a pigment wash process to create an almost two tone boucle effect. The fabric is pre shrunk and much harder wearing than any wool could be and also offers a much more unique look after undertaking the pigment dye process.
The pacific blue colourway was actually developed by mistake, we had been testing navy pantones for some FW21 items and one had undergone the wrong amount of dye and came out in a much lighter tone. We renamed this pacific blue and released it for summer as it was to good not to use!
Extremely happy with how these have come out and cant wait for you all to get your hands on them!
Using a custom knit British sweatshirt fabric in 330GSM before dye, stitched in London and dyed in Leicester. British made start to finish.
