Almost certainly. I've had some success peeling cold blanched almonds by
rubbing them in paper towels. Rubbing in a coarse cloth would be nearly
ideal for that task.
Indeed it is just about the only way to peel hazelnuts (which I have never
found for sale blanched). Toast them, and then rub them in a towelling
cloth. It works like a charm (apart from the odd stubborn one). Makes a big
mess of the cloth though :-)
