Creating Cloth: white & silver boucle squares

This fabric is a poly rayon cotton with silver lurex and shots of cream bouclé. This particular swatch is jacket-weight, and it is about 45epi. I would love to see it scaled up, with a thicker bouclé yarn for a bit more drama. Below is the reverse of the fabric, and you may be able to see vertical floats- every time I see floats, I think wool! shrinkage! texture! If I did scale this up, I would certainly add wool. I have a bunch of this weaving analysis ready to go, just need to find them!
