Description – Also known as Winceyette this is an exceptionally soft, brushed fabric with a warm handle and is perfect for nightwear and other garments.

Flannel fabric itself was first developed in Wales in the 17th Century, where weavers discovered that by adding the ‘nap’, they created an uncommonly soft fabric that kept warmth in better despite its lighter weight. Its brushed surface has a distinctive raised texture known as napped flannelette. The napped cotton is dry finished by raising fibres on the surface to produce a ‘fuzzy’ feel and appearance. It is this ‘fuzziness’ that retains the warmth and creates the softness. It also became popular in nightwear because it has the ability to absorb and then release perspiration – helping to avoid waking up in a pool of sweat!

 

Washing Instructions – Manufacturer Says: 30 degree machine wash. Warm Tumble Dry. We strongly recommend testing a small piece first to be sure.
