Flannel, also known as spun velvet, velvet towels, etc., is a soft fabric based on wool fabric. Its name comes from the Amion region of France and is an ancient woolen fabric. In the modern fashion world, flannel is a common material widely used in fields such as clothing, bedding, toys, and decoration. Due to its soft, comfortable feel and warmth retention performance, it is highly loved by the public. The characteristics of flannel mainly stem from its material and weaving method. The so-called wool fabric refers to the fine woolly substances such as fibers and cottonseed in the fabric. The fibers of wool have an air layer that can prevent heat from being emitted from the human body, thus providing excellent insulation. The flannel weaving method is to weave a lot of small cells cut with plush on the checkered or diamond shaped cotton backing cloth on the loom, and then through special processing technology, the plush of the small cells is lifted up to form a dense blanket like surface. This makes the flannel fabric very soft, fluffy, comfortable to the touch, and warm to the touch.
