Wool Flannels in the 18th century consisted of a woolen yarn slightly twisted in the spinning and woven in plain or twill weave. This created a soft, spongy wool, not extremely sturdy but useful for a variety of purposes such as petticoats, gowns, underwaistcoats, jackets, children's clothing etc.  When fulled, flannel would become very lofty creating a soft but thick fabric.  Mixed in the 18th century referred to mixed colors often done by dying the fleece prior to spinning.  Mixed was found in a variety of qualites of wool including cassimeres, kerseys, flannels and broadcloths. If you intend to full this flannel you could loose 6 to 10 inches per yard in shrinkage.
