Caps & Aprons
At the time, flannels would have been made exclusively of carded wool or worsted yarn. The great demand for this kind of cloth led to the creation of flannelettes, made of napped cotton. According to the Encyclopedia Britannica the word appeared in the 1880s. Although the texture was similar, at equivalent prices, flannelettes were usually of better quality than flannels.
