ᴱQ. ue n. “fleece” (Category: Wool)

⚠️ᴱQ. ue, n. “fleece” (Category: Wool)
ᴺQ. ^tuë “fleece”

A word appearing as ᴱQ. ue “fleece” in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s derived from primitive ᴱ✶ou̯χe, although that the primitive form was marked through (QL/71). It was therefore based on the early root ᴱ√OWO having to do with wool.

Neo-Quenya: The root for “wool” became ᴹ√TOW in The Etymologies of the 1930s, so I would adapt this Early Qenya word as ᴺQ. tuë “fleece”, from primitive *towē where owe > oue > ue (PE19/63).
