Flannel Quality and Sources

I hadn't sewn with flannel for awhile and recently had bad luck with
several lengths I bought at Joann's--- lots of weaving faults, warped
fabric, and way uneven plus too much shrinkage (from too loose a weave
and poor quality control).  I looked at their flannel again a couple
days ago and discovered that most of it was that way... ick!

So I'm wondering if there are better sources for (non-baby) flannel,
perhaps online?  Has the quality of flannel degraded generally or is
Joann's just buying particularly lousy goods?  I'm afraid to buy from
Fabric.com since they sent me 2 different lengths of poly/cotton
interlock that was supposed to be all cotton per their web site.  TIA.

Re: Flannel Quality and Sources
I've ordered several fabrics from eQuilter.com and so far have never had a
problem.  This is my own experience with them, but I have never heard of
them selling anything except excellent fabric.

My eQuilter fabric has also been excellent, in both quality of fabric
and of service.  Hm...  Must order from them again!  :)

I'll take a look at eQuilter and keep my eye out for flannel from
Portugal.  Thank you all for the help. :)

I don't have a specific source at the moment, but if you find flannel
from Portugal, it won't disappoint. JPBill

Hello,

I have not ordered from this website yet but you might want to give them a
try.
