Quality European flannel
Flannel's history purportedly began with a similar fabric originating in Wales in the 1500s and it spread throughout Europe over the next several centuries. Those early flannels were made of fine, short staple wool, but by the 20th century, cotton flannel became more common.
Following that strong European tradition, the 100% cotton flannel we use in our Cuddledown bedding and sleepwear comes from the finest mills in Germany and Portugal. The premiere 6 oz. German flannel that we use in our sheets is known worldwide for its softness and long-lasting quality. It's napped (a process where the fabric is gently brushed to create fine fibers from the loosely spun yarns) often a dozen times or more throughout production to create the extra fleecy soft hand and volume for which it's renowned. In addition to napping, our Portuguese flannel is also submitted to the Velvet treatment for strength and to decrease pilling. And finally, our flannels are Oeko Tex® certified to be free from harmful chemicals.
