What do they call the goat beard's hair used in fabrics?
Shahtoosh (Persian for the King of Wools) is the most expensive wool in the world. It is commonly used in small amounts, such as in shawls and scarves. It significantly lighter, softer, and thinner than regular wool. The wool comes from mountainous regions in Tibet and India. To harvest the wool, the chiru (an antelope - not a goat) must be killed. It may take killing 4 animals to make a shawl. The chiru is now on the endangered species list, and it is illegal to buy, sell, or own Shahtoosh in the U.S.A. In Turkey, especially in Istanbul, many scarves are labeled Shahtoosh, but they are actually a loosely woven Cashmere. The Cashmere is harvested without killing the animal. The fake Shahtoosh scarves will cost between $70 to $400 and are legal to buy.

Asked in Middle Ages
Did the woman in the medieval times wear shawls?
It seems medieval women did not wear shawls, though I would welcome someone else to find more on this. Shawls were worn in ancient Persia, but seem to have been introduced into Western Europe during the 16th or 17th century. According to my dictionary, the word came into English from Persian, with the earliest recorded use in 1609.
