Flannelette, which is also known as flannel, is an ultra soft, loosely woven material which is produced with a twill weave featuring a napped surface. There are several types of flannel; all of which differ in the weave and the degree of napping. Flannelette can either have a long or short nap, and can be napped on one or two sides.
It is known to have originated in Wales back in the 16th Century when it was used to make warm clothes to combat the winter cold and was traditionally made from carded wool, although modern flannel can be derived from cottons, wool or a synthetic blend. Flannel was originally most popular in clothing whereas nowadays it is more known to be used for bed linen and pyjamas being the popular clothing type.
The flannelette bedding from Victoria Linen is made at a 200 thread count with 100% brushed cotton; the fabric is fuzzy and also thicker than any regular fabric such as standard cotton. The flannelette is designed to keep people warm and is extra soft; therefore it is perfect for cold sleepers, winter time or even a holiday caravan where it can get chilly. It is a fabric which is easy to take care of and is very durable; the more the bedding gets washed the softer the fabric gets.
At Victoria Linen they offer a wide range of products within their flannelette range including fitted and flat sheets, pillowcases, moses basket fitted sheets, cot bedding and much more.
