Flannel (1)

woollen f. which is soft to the touch, with a thick, long, flat-lying pile which partially or completely covers the weave in the face and back. Produced from fine worsted, also carded yarns, mainly in (two-and-two twill) weave. Can be of various weights. Used for men's suits and ladies' dresses and suits. The name is derived from the Welsh "gwlamen" - a woollen article whose name evolved to "flannen" and then "flannel".
