Lambskin

 

the skin of a lamb of a coarse-fleeced breed of sheep (excluding astrakhan sheep) that has died or been killed before the age of two weeks. The hair on a lambskin forms cylindrical, bean-shaped, and ring-shaped curls of large to small sizes, and there are transitions to straight hair. Lambskin is considerably inferior to karakul and other astrakhan skins in quality of fur and the flesh side of the hide. It is used to make collars, hats, and coats.
