How many washes do your flannel shirts last?

After about 10 washes, my flannel shirts tend to fuzz out, with the fuzz making the colors very dull. Do better quality flannel shirts last longer?

I'm not a lumberjack, so I can't help you with this one.

Are you throwing them in the dryer or leaving them out to hang dry?

6 times, then set on fire. Then they last for an additional 6 washes. Rinse, repeat.

I threw a flannel shirt in the dryer once, it didn't turn out well.
So I just hang dry now.

Hang dry, then air fluff works best for shirts.

Good flannel should last a while if it's hang dried.
