Thayer's Greek Lexicon
STRONGS NT 3374: μηλωτή

μηλωτή, μηλωτης, (from μῆλον sheep, also a goat; as καμηλωτη (`camlet') from κάμηλος (cf. Lob. Paralip., p. 332)), a sheepskin: Hebrews 11:37, and thence in Clement of Rome, 1 Cor. 17, 1 [ET]. For אַדֶּרֶת an outer robe, mantle, the Sept. in 1 Kings 19:13, 19; 2 Kings 2:8, 13f, doubtless because these mantles were made of skins; hence, more closely שֵׂעָר אַדֶּרֶת, a mantle of hair, Zechariah 13:4 (where the Sept. δέρρις τριχινη). In the Byzantine writings (Apoll. Dysk. 191, 9) μηλοτη denotes a monk's garment.

From melon (a sheep); a sheep-skin -- sheepskin.
