"Flannel mouth" was used in our family to describe a person who talked
interminably, usually on a subject he knew nothing about.

Has anyone heard the term "flannel mouth"? An elderly cousin (92) used this
in a conversation yesterday when describing an Irish in-law the family was
not fond of. This in-law passed away in the 1930's.

Thanks for any information.
