woollen stuff, Dan vadmel. Cf. Wad a small mass, and
A coarse, hairy, woolen cloth, formerly used for garments by
the poor, and for various other purposes. (Spelled also
wadmal, wadmeal, wadmoll, wadmel, etc.) --Beck
(Draper's Dict.). Sir W. Scott.
One gets hold of bilbies very gently, and never by the ears.
