Never mind that we blanket you in it (thanks to your tia Sally who sewed you several variations) every chance we get—when it’s cold nothing better to hold the warmth against your skin, but flannel takes up a bit of real estate in the dictionary, who knew?: flannel, flannel board, flannel cake (no, not funnel cake, flannel cake: griddlecake, pancake), flannelet, flannelleaf, flannely, flannel mouth. Who knew?
Same page as FLAMINGO, which of course gets a drawing, as does FLANGE.
FLANNEL: n. 1. a warm, soft, napped fabric of wool or cotton or blends of wool and cotton, wool and rayon, or of cotton warp with wool filling.2. an outer garment, esp. trousers, made of flannel.
Great fabric for sheets and blankets, esp. during the cold days/months wherever you shall live. Not as stylish in shirt or trousers form unless the 90s come back with a vengeance.
