We're talking about gloves made form cotton cloth, NOT cotton swabs.
The requirements for photographic use was to be soft enough to not scratch
the emulsion, with as little lint as possible.
Soft nylon gloves were not readily available then, and "lint-free" cotton
gloves (really only LOW-lint) were the lowest lint of anything soft enough
that was readily available at the time (30 years ago)
