I kept thinking about the "ultimate" flannel shirt and that's how I approached designing this fabric, but as with so many things once your idea materializes it challenges you to re think your initial intention. One important factor as with most of the fabrics I make with thistle hill is , it's just very difficult to cut into them.

Being part of the weaving process I guess allows me to value every bit of it. Frank Taylor and Rabbit Goody herself hand operated the weft changes.(stopping the machine and manually re shooting the shuttle through with the different yarn)
