Real mole skin is fantastically soft.  My mother used to 
mention that way back in the 1800's, my grandmother had 
powder puffs made of moleskin (stuffed with cotton or 
cotton wool).  So when my Dad was getting rid of moles in 
their lawn, I skinned the critters, cured the skins, and made 
some old-fashioned moleskin powder puffs for my Mom.  
Sadly, they've disappeared. But making them was fun.
