Medium to heavy woven cloth. May be cotton or other. No wool. Thank you.

For flannel, try your local quilt shops.  They sometimes carry it for
quilt backing or quilt linings.

Sometimes cloth stores can special order a certain fabric for you.

Write to the folks at Fabric.com. Sometimes they have things that are not
on their site or they can get it for you.

http://www.pmquilting.com/ says they have flannel up to 108" wide.

http://www.fabric.com/quilting-fabric-quilt-backing-broadcloth-extra-wide-flannel.aspx
  is for 108" flannel.

Several places mention 60" flannel, and of course, many have 45".  All
found with a Google search for "wide flannel yardage."

Dear Joanne,
Thank you for your suggestions. Now I get it. This is called extra wide
fabrics. How do you touch and feel when buy online?
Can you ask for sample? Or, is there any local Northern California shop I
can go to check out the touch and feel of the fabrics.
Do you find shopping fabric online costs more because fabrics is bulky and
heavy with expensive shipping cost? Thank you.

Lots of places will send you a sample, or have a very generous return
policy.  Ask before ordering.

On-line fabric sources are filling a void.  Paying for shipping becomes
moot when the alternative is to do without.  If you have a good fabric
outlet locally, by all means, support it.  If they don't do business,
they will close as have so many others.  The on-line sources are the
only resource for many.

Okay, they are in Southern California and their fabrics are mostly for home
dec... but they are woven 120" wide, but are available preshrunk a bit
smaller... and are definitely heavy woven cotton:
