You might try laying each boucle end flat across the back of the piece and whip-stitching over it with a tapestry needle and a strand of thin, smooth yarn -- maybe the baby Cashmerino. About an inch of closely-sewn stitches should be enough to hold the end in place, and if you are careful not to sew through to the front, should look quite neat. Hope you don't have too many of these to do! As for the wisdom of your mix -- it sounds beautiful and original.
