In the rugged old days, thick wool flannel collared shirts were a pretty basic thing, because everything was made of wool anyway - what luxury! Now in the plastic future these are rather hard to come by. We did our part and patched up some of this gaping hole with the Särmä wool flannel shirt.

  • A clean, thick flannel shirt
  • Fabric 65% recycled wool, 30% polyester and 5% other fibers
  • Fabric made in Italy, shirt made in Estonia

There are a lot of spiffy cheap rags of shirts, which "will do", until you try on something real and proper good. The danger after this is that you might raise your standards. This collared shirt is one of those more premium style articles of clothing, so try on at your own risk. All in all, this shirt is nothing short of a miracle: made of Italian wool fabric, sewn in Estonia (it's just South of Finland) and the whole package for this price.

The cut is classic: simple covered breast pockets, stand-up collar, adjustable sleeve cuffs etc., in essence a timeless design fit for work, outdoors and pleasure, and if you get wet in the rain, this will still keep you warmer than a cotton shirt. The shirt comes with one spare button. By the way, the buttons are pretty well sewn on.

Check pattern colors are red-black-gray and green-white-black.

Material and care

The fabric is made of 65 % recycled wool, 30 % polyester and 5 % other fibers (estimate of the unknown fibers among the recycled materials). Brushed recycled wool: inside is fluffier while the outside is smoother - very comfortable. The polyester is there just for strength. The content is small enough not to interfere with the wool's properties. Wash in 30 degrees Celsius (86 F) with wool cycle, hang dry. Usually just airing the shirt out is enough. Use of wool care products recommended but not mandatory.


We have listed first the easy size, then user's recommended measurements: user height / chest circumference. These are fitted a tad slimmer on the waist - this merely means they're not as baggy as many others.

In the chart below you can see the actual measurements taken directly from the shirt itself: back length from base of the collar to the hem and sleeve length from shoulder seam to cuff. Chest circumference is not visible on purpose: due to the bellowed back it's difficult to communicate without inciting the customer to lean towards a wrong size. We strongly suggest looking at the drop down menu's recommended measurements, this way you will get the right size. The measurements below are NOT the recommended user's measurements.

These are made in Estonia, the country just south of Finland. It's in the European Union. Finland is too.

A word from the development team

We've been wrestling with this shirt for quite a while but now it's becoming a reality. You could think it's pretty easy to find any fabric in the market but NO, especially when "made in China" wasn't an option; we had to have it made in Europe. We searched far and wide for proper wool flannel with no results, but the answer was closer than we would have ever thought: the same company that makes many of our Särmä TST stuff was able to provide something that filled our fantasies: great material, our own check style, reasonable minimum ordering amounts. All the trouble was worth it, and now we hope to make something else from this fabric in the future too.

Super warm. Much more than other flannel shirts I had. I thought a lot about it since I already had and they are cheap in Spain so I can buy there when I visit home. but i checked a bit more about what flannel means and there are many kinds, mixtures of materials and qualities so I gave this one a try. This one is defenitely top notch. super warm and the fit is superb!! Update: Love it, if you can afford it, go for this one. You will notice the quality in warmth and in the lack of smell and feeling of softness and cleaness.

Helkkarin mukava ja komea paita, yllättävän lämmin myös. Eiköhän tällä mennä sekä pubiin että mökille. Helma ehkä mielestäni vähän lyhyt, mutta ei haittaa mua.

Nice and thick. Straight out of the packaging it'll be much itchier than what we really expect of modern wool products. An initial wash with some lanolin concentrate detergent fixed the bulk of that issue, however. Still somewhat prickly in the sleeves. A baselayer shirt underneath wouldn't be a bad idea.

Lämmin ja laadukas paita, joka on omiaan syksyisille keleille. Toivelistalle lisää värivaihtoehtoja.

The shirt is just awesome, excellent craftmanship and perfect fit. But itchy as hell, I cannot wear it without screaming of torment. I will consider either return, trying to wash in woolen detergent or just giving to someone else as gift (although they may hate me afterwards). Seriously doubt I will ever endure the collar and sleeves on bare neck and wrists. Or shall I wear neoprene underwear?
