Word of the day: wadmal

The word of the day is wadmal:
  1. a bulky woolen fabric woven of coarse yarn and heavily napped, formerly much used in England and Scandinavia for the manufacture of durable winter garments.

"They unloaded two large chests while Kivrin and the girls watched, several wadmal bags, and an enormous wine cask."

 - Connie Willis, Doomsday Book
