Brushed Cotton is a lovely fabric that is soft to the touch, during the process of creating the fabric, the cotton is brushed on the face side to remove any lint and fibers. The process leaves a soft face that helps to trap heat yet as cotton it is also breathable. Like Brushed Cotton, Flannel is also brushed when it's being made - however, this is brushed on both sides as opposed to just one (like brushed cotton). Brushed Flannel is slightly "fuzzier and warmer than brushed cotton and though lightweight, it is sometimes thicker. Use for quilting, apparel, and home decor accents.
