Winceyette fabric is a brand name for a soft fabric. It has a slightly woolley finish. This fabric is generally constructed using a plain weave and is mainly made of cotton. The cotton fibres are brushed to create a fabric with a slightly raised, two-sided nap. This fabric is a flannelette fabric which means it is very similar to flannel and was made to imitate this. Winceyette fabric is a soft, warm fabric and is used mainly in bedding, pyjama and shirts and can be printed with many different patterns and designs or can be plain dyed in various colours.
