Flannel is a soft woolen fabric with a suede surface made of coarse woolen yarn.It was created in Wales, England, in the 18th century.Generally, it refers to the carded woolen fabric with a flowered style, which is covered with plump, fine and clean wool, with no visible weave pattern, soft and smooth to the hand, and slightly thinner than Melden.
Flannel colour and lustre is plain and elegant, have light gray, medium gray, dark gray cent, suit to make jacket of men and women of spring and autumn and west trousers, flannel gram is tall, wool is more delicate and dense, fabric is thick, cost is high, warmth is good.
Flannel face is covered with a plump, fine and clean nap, with no visible weave, soft and smooth feel, and slightly thinner body bone than Melden.After downsizing and fluffing finishing, the hand feel is plump and the suede is exquisite.
Flannel production is the first part of wool or cotton fiber dyeing, then mixed with a part of the primary color wool or cotton fiber, after blending and spinning into mixed color wool yarn, woven into fabric by downsizing, pulling and finishing.Most use twill texture, also useful plain texture.The raw materials used in addition to the total wool or pure cotton, generally for wool or cotton viscidity blended, some to improve the wear resistance mixed with a small amount of polyamide fiber.
Flannel is suitable for making trousers, blouses, children’s clothes, etc. Thin fabric can also be used for shirts and skirts.The raw material USES 64 pieces of fine wool, the warp and weft USES more than 12 male carded yarn, the fabric structure has plain weave, twill and so on, after the downsizing, the fluff finishing, the hand feel is full, the suede is exquisite.The fabric weight is about 260 ~ 320 g/m 2, and the thin one is about 220 g/m 2.More use of loose fiber dyeing, mainly black and white color with different shades of gray or milk white, light coffee and other colors.There are also pieces dyed plain and striped, plaid, etc.Flannel also has worsted or cotton yarns as warp and carded yarns as weft, and carded yarns are sometimes blended with a small amount of cotton or viscose.
In terms of fabric characteristics and thermal insulation effect, flannel and coral velvet, with soft surface, have a comfortable feeling of wearing and good thermal effect.
But from a manufacturing point of view, these two fabrics are completely different, the woven fabric after careful comparison there are also differences, what are these differences?
The difference between flannel and Coral Plush
Before flannel fabric is woven, the wool is dyed and the wool added with the primary color is blended and woven. Twill weave and plain weave are adopted. At the same time, the fabric is processed with downening and pulling wool, which makes the fabric soft and tight.
The fabric of coral velvet is made of polyester fiber. The weaving process mainly goes through heating, deformation, cooling and shaping, etc. The weaving process is also improved and upgraded year by year, and new processes are constantly added, so that the fabric has a richer sense of layers and rich colors.
The difference between flannel and Coral Velvet ii:
It can be seen from the selection of raw materials that the wool used in flannel is very different from the polyester fiber used in coral fleece.
Can be found from manufactured goods, flannel fabrics more thick, the density of wool cloth with soft nap is very close, the nap of the coral fleece density relatively sparse, because the cause of the raw materials, hair feel is also slightly different, feel is more exquisite and soft flannel, at the same time, the thickness and warmth retention property of the fabric is different, using wool flannel as raw material is more thick, more warm.
From the selection of production technology and raw materials, we can clearly understand what is the difference between flannel and coral velvet?
Flannel is the better material. Therefore, it can be seen that the difference between the two kinds of fabrics lies in the fabric cost, the thermal effect, the feel, the density of the fabric wool and whether the wool falls off.
