"A shtreimel (Yiddish: שטרײַמל, pl. שטרײַמלעך shtreimlech) is a fur hat worn by many married haredi Jewish men, particularly (although not exclusively) members of Hasidic groups, on Shabbat and Jewish holidays and other festive occasions."

Concerning the history of the shtreimel read my article:
History of the Jewish Shtreimel

According 4. Moses 15,38-41 the Shrteimel is made of 26 pieces of fur. This number represents the tetragrammaton (JHWH): J = 10; H = 5; W = 6; H = 5
