Flannel Fabric is warm and usually made from loosely spun yarn. Flannel is commonly used to make clothing and bed sheets, which is a soft woven fabric, of various fineness. Flannel was originally made from carded wool or worsted yarn. Now its often made from either wool, cotton, or synthetic fibre. It may be brushed to create extra softness or remain unbrushed. The brushing process is a mechanical process where a fine metal brush rubs the fabric to create fine fibers from the loosely spun yarns. Flannel’s soft texture has a luxurious feel and lends extra warmth to quilts and garments. If the proper care is taken during the sewing process, you will be rewarded with a soft, warm luxurious quilt.
