Genesis 27:16  (King James Version)
And she put the skins of the kids of the goats upon his hands, and upon the smooth of his neck:
 


skins
Travellers inform us, that the Eastern goats have long, fine, and beautiful hair, of the most delicate silky softness; indeed the animals generally in those hot countries are not covered with so thick a coat of hair as they are in more northerly regions; so that Isaac might easily be deceived, when his eyes were dim, and his feeling no less impaired than his sight.
