Definitely flexible, unless it's one of those made stiff enough to be solid, and that would generally be determined by whether you have many quilted layers or stuffed quilting. Think of making armour out of sail canvas rather than clothing linen, and rather rougher on sword edges.

And if you have dwarves you've either got magic or sufficient tech.
