Tune In This Winter to the Flannel Channel & Rad Plaids!

Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams Kendal Sectional

The temperature is dropping and it’s time to get out those big, warm blankets so you can snuggle up on the sofa with a nice cup of hot chocolate, and enjoy the season of winter!  Don’t forget to grab your boots, scarves, and coats that keep you warm and cozy!  Also don’t forget that your home may need a few items to warm up the interior….I’m talking about flannel and plaid decor and designs!

Here is a little background on this winter’s main material!  According to Wikipedia, Flannel is a soft woven fabric, of various fineness.  Flannel was originally made from carded wool or worsted yarn, but is now often made from either wool, cotton, or synthetic fibers. Flannel may be brushed to create extra softness or remain unbrushed.  The brushing process is a mechanical process where a fine metal brush rubs the fabric to create fine fibers from the loosely spun yarns.  Typically, flannel has either a single- or double-sided nap. Double-napped flannel refers to a fabric that has been brushed on both sides. If the flannel is not napped, it gains its softness through the loosely spun yarn in its woven form.  Flannel is commonly used to make plaid!  A plaid or full plaid is a pleated cloth worn with the modern kilt, made from the same tartan and worn cast over the shoulder and fastened at the front.  The belted plaid or “great kilt”, earlier form of the kilt plaid, is also used as a synonym for tartan or, in the USA, any checked cloth pattern.
