Ulster cloth

heavyweightwool-type loden fabric, with a long, one-way, lustrous pile which is soft to the touch. Its linen or twill weave is covered by a pile from carded yarn, which is most commonly melange. Fabric is naturally impregnated with an admixture of goatshair (otherwise chemical) and is used for sports-style coats and ulster coats. The name is taken from that of the patron saint of hunters, Hubert.
