Flannelette (UK) or flannel (USA), is a loose cotton weave fabric, available in a myriad of prints and colors, making it ideal for the outer part of pads. Its is also absorbent, so it can be used as an inner core (although several layers would be needed depending on the absorbency required). It also provides good "non-slip" friction with natural-fiber underpants, and so is a good backing material for wingless pads.
