Get cozy today in a flannel shirt or just don’t change out of your pyjamas. Know what makes flannel so dang warm? The yarn is frayed so the fibre ends stick out, making it feel softer and trapping warm air against your skin.

Flannel started from farmers in the 1600s in Scotland. Although some argue it started in Wales in the 17th century…
