Ruddy wool

When the Blooms' son Rudolph died in January 1894, only a few days after his birth, he was buried in a wool jacket that Molly had been knitting for him. Both parents think about this occurrence during the course of the novel. Uncannily, Stephen too seems to have some telepathic intimation of it.
