Moleskin

 

a thick, strong cotton fabric made with a rein-forced satin weave. On its right side moleskin has a smooth, dense weft covering, which is produced by using a distinctive weave and weft threads that are closer together than the warp threads. The fabric is usually in solid, dark colors. Some napped varieties are known as moleskin cloth. Moleskin is used in making work and sport clothes, special uniforms, shoe uppers, and book bindings. The thicker varieties are sometimes called buck-skin.
