Look, it's beautiful. 
Look, those curves.
Look, it looks so soft.

Don't get to close, because it's a lie.
It's rough.
It's abrasive.
It will hurt you.



-------------------


Boucle is typically created with the softest fibre, and as such is known for it softness and coziness. This boucle is made from the coarsest, most harsh fibres I had access to.  This yarn is meant as a commentary on being female in our society. How we are meant to be soft, curvy and gentle, but with the mistreatments we endure we can become abrasive and callous.  We still put on our soft curvy gentleness as a facade because we have to, but it can bare bitterness in the end.

It does look comfy-cosy but yikes, don't get too close! Who knew a yarn could harm?
Did you make this for an exhibit or just needed to express yourself?

I'm kind of just making a bunch of stuff with a big exhibit in mind. I have proposed it, and I hope they accept!
