focus on flannel

Flannel Selection designed by Ann Kelle for Robert Kaufman

My Gran always had flannel sheets .. they were alwaya well worn and usually joined in the middle .. after being cut down the middle and re-sewn .. I think that you know exactly what I am talking about as your Gran's probably all had the same as well. What I really remember about flannel however is that it was always very warm and snuggly .. I loved staying there .. Along with home made bread, the super creamy hand patted butter and the fresh from the cow milk .. the flannel sheets were one of my favourite things about staying there ..

So when I kept seeing on the wholesales list flannel .. there and everywhere .. I knew that I just had to stock it .... and hope that customers will love it just as much as me . -Flannel is a soft woven fabric, of various fineness. It usually doesn't have a nap, and instead gains its softness through the loosely spun yarn it is woven from. It is commonly used to make clothing, bed sheets, and sleepwear. Our flannel is 100% cotton ... and is super soft. .. Although it can be used in sleepwear for Adults .. It should not be used in Infants or children's sleepwear. -Flannels tend to shrink about 5% -10% compared with regular cotton which shrinks between 1 and 3 percent.

Flannels are addictive. Once you're sewn with them you want that wonderful, soft feeling from all of your quilts. Flannels lay very well for piecing of quilts... your kiddies and your man .. will love you forever if you make hem a quilt from this beautiful good quality flannel delicacy
