1. wool => velvet.
- velvet:  Velvet is etymologically a ‘hairy’ or ‘downy’ fabric. Its ultimate ancestor is Latin villus ‘hair, down’, which also produced English velours . From it was derived medieval Latin villūtus ‘shaggy’, which passed into Old French as velu ‘velvety’. And this in turn formed the basis of a noun veluotte, from which English got velvet. The derivative velveteen dates from the 18th century.
