Sorry, no etymologies found.
Also, our foragers came up with a very good herd of wild sheep yesterday!
To absorb moisture and soft milky stools, any of several materials were packed around them: fleece from wild sheep gathered from thorny shrubs when the mouflon were shedding, down from birds 'breasts, or fuzz from fibrous plants.
As chance provided, the white wool of mouflon which was shed naturally by the wild sheep in spring, the unbelievably soft earthy-brown downy wool of musk-ox, and the lighter red rhinoceros underwool were also gathered with great enthusiasm.
