They werent Humans like us. There has been proof for a long time that there were other homo species before us and co existing with us at different times in the past.

Perhaps Neandertals were hairy as apes? Perhaps they were the origin of myth of the Yeti, Sasquatch, or abomidable snowman? There is no evidence that Neandertals ever used needles or thread yet they were able to somehow survive in Northern latitudes during the depths of the ice ages? Neandertals are always portrayed hairless like us but it is just as likely that homo sapiens were the only hairless apes and all those that came before us were as hairy (or more so) than our early ape-like ancestors?

I dont know how accurate it is to say they "came before us" since we existed at the same time, in the same place. The were our competition not our ancestors. As far as using a needle and thread, I dont know how how necessary they would be in skinning an animal and draping the hide over yourself.
