    I found this along with an old lens from years and years ago. Material seems like it might be some kind of hide, doesn't seem synthetic but I could be wrong. Anyone know what this is and where I can find more of this?

    Tried to clean it by washing it out but it seemed to warp it's shape.

    Isn't it chamois leather..?..used to be very popular for lens cleaning.

    Chamois

    I have always and still use chamois for cleaning my lenses, as long as you use it exclusively for that purpose it will serve you well and it does a superb job as well as being cheap to purchase.

    Why spend more than you have to?

    That looks right, thanks! I went to Calumet and all they had was microfiber cloth. I'll have to get some online.

    I've got a 3M/Scotch-Brite microfiber cloth for cleaning glasses, perfect and washable

    My only concern with a chamois is with particles becoming trapped in the fibers that do not come out easily with washing. Anything with a rough surface would be prone to that I suppose.
