What is "Astrakhan Cloth" - Definition & Explanation

A thick woven or knitted fabric with lots of loops or curls that imitates the pelt of an Astrakhan lamb.
Astrakhan pelt of the newborn Persian lamb, used like fur in garments, and also the woolen fabric woven to resemble real astrakhan. The cloth is woven on a cotton base entirely covered by a pile of closely curled mohair. Before being woven the mohair is wound on spindles and steamed to produce a tight, permanent curl.
