Why are moleskin trousers called this? These trousers are not actually made from a moles skin! The fabric gets its name from the similar texture of the animal skin. A layer of cotton is woven onto another base layer of cotton and then often sheered to create a soft pile on one side. Although the German army did not use sheered fabric for there uniforms.
