Boucle Peacock. Boucle is both a yarn and a fabric made from it. The yarn is made from a length of loops of similar size which can range from tiny circlets to large curls. To make boucle, at least two strands are combined, with the tension on one strand being much looser than the other as it is being plied, with the loose strand forming the loops and the other strand as the anchor. I can find nothing that compares to this framed piece. It is beautiful and was hand stitched onto silk and framed in the early 1900s. The frame with glass is 19 1/2 x 37 1/2 inches.
