What is flannel?

Flannel is a kind of soft-woven fabric, typically made of wool or cotton and slightly milled and raised.  Flannel was originally made from carded wool or worsted yarn, but is now often made from either wool, cotton, or synthetic fiber.

Flannel may be brushed to create extra softness or remain un-brushed. Brushed flannel is typically a little more expensive because it goes thru an extra process at the fabric mill.

  • Brushing is a mechanical process wherein a fine metal brush rubs the fabric to raise fine fibers from the loosely spun yarns to form a nap on one side or both sides. If the flannel is not napped, it gains its softness through the loosely spun yarn in its woven form.

Flannel is often used to make loungewear & sleepwear.  Lounge pants are a perfect candidate for flannel fabric.

Although flannel can be solid color, women's flannel lounge pants are often made as Tartan.  Tartan is a pattern consisting of criss-crossed horizontal and vertical bands in multiple colors.  Tartan is often called plaid in North America, but in Scotland, a plaid is a tartan cloth slung over the shoulder as a kilt accessory, or a plain ordinary blanket such as one would have on a bed.

  • Tartan is made with alternating bands of colored (pre-dyed) threads woven as both warp and weft at right angles to each other. The weft is woven in a simple twill, two over—two under the warp, advancing one thread at each pass. This forms visible diagonal lines where different colors cross, which give the appearance of new colors blended from the original ones. The resulting blocks of color repeat vertically and horizontally in a distinctive pattern of squares and lines known as a sett.

Loungewear is clothing suitable for relaxing. Loungewear is often sold as a top & bottom set.  Or you can simply purchase bottoms.  Lounge pants are garments worn from the waist to the ankles, covering both legs separately. They are worn for lounging around.  You will find that they came in various options.  For example, some come with drawstrings and others simply with elastic waistband.
