Today is National Flannel Day

February 10 is National Flannel Day
Soft and comfortable, this favorite fabric of lesbians everywhere has been around for 400 years!

While we know you shouldn’t go around guessing the sexual preferences of strangers based on their clothing, there’s something about a woman in a plaid flannel shirt that is likely to earn a second glance from her fellow sapphics. Once known as Welsh cotton, it was actually traditionally made of wool (yes, we were also confused by this). By the 20th century, flannel had taken on a no-nonsense, blue collar reputation, and it became especially popular in the 1990s as a favorite choice for the grunge music crowd.

Today we celebrate this wardrobe staple with three books who have women wearing flannel shirts on the covers.

Curious what tomorrow’s special day will be?

Make sure to check back each day for your daily calendar trivia, along with more great book recommendations! Any day spent reading sapphic books is a day to be celebrated!
