The ventilation holes between the fibers give it good thermal insulation. The warmth effect is outstanding when wearing, but it will not be too hot due to external factors.

Many flannel fabric manufacturers came into being to produce flannel products. Till today, wool flannel is still a common winter fabric for suits.
