While the first thing that comes to mind when we you think about flannel, may be a red and black plaid shirt -worn by a lumberjack- flannel is so much more than that and we love it!
A soft woven fabric, flannel was originally made from carded wool or worsted yarn. It has an unmatched ability to hold in heat and keep moisture away. It is both sturdy and soft to the touch, making it a fabric fit for the masses.
Flannel first made its way to the US in 1869. It was used to make underwear in the form of long johns. It then became a go-to fabric for bedding and other household items.
Originally, flannel was made from either carded wool or worsted yarn, modern flannels however are made from either wool, cotton, or synthetic fiber. Once it is woven with either a plain weave or a twill, it is usually brushed or napped to give it the extra softness we expect from flannel.
That extra softness is what makes flannel an excellent choice for bedding, especially for quilts and winter sheets. There is no better escape from a cold night in the dead of winter than curling up under soft-napped, flannel sheets. Its breathable cotton construction, makes flannel a winter favorite, but it can be equally comfortable during the summer.
Flannel sheets will not only make your bed look stylish, but they add a layer of comfort and will keep you warm through even the coldest night.
We’ve made this well loved and classic fabric available in solid print bed sheets, available in Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, California King. Each set includes a flat sheet, fitted sheet, and two pillowcases (one with twin set).
