the considerations are static electricity and lint.   Most synthetic
materials, and wool, tend to give static electricity. Once the lens is
statically charged, it will attract dust. Cotton will shed lint. Dammed if
you do and............

I vote for cotton, the soft type, woven for added cushion. Use two socks for
added padding. If you want best protection from the above, and be really
fashionable, the inner sock can be silk. If the toes and edges are sewn
together, it will be easier to remove the lens without major glitches.
