What is the significance of the lampstand utensils being covered in goatskin?

Numbers 4:10 (ESV)

10 And they shall put it with all its utensils in a covering of goatskin and put it on the carrying frame.

It seems that the utensils belonging to the lampstand were covered in goatskin without being enveloped by a cloth of scarlet, as would be the case with the other utensils. Perhaps this shows that their ranking is one beneath that of other the utensils belonging to the table (Numbers 4:8).
