These handmade face coverings feature a window enabling those who are hard of hearing or deaf to be able to lip read or see expressions whilst you are wearing the mask. They can also be beneficial when working with small children who may find it difficult not being able to see your expression.
Size: SMALL YOUTH - suitable for teenagers with a smaller face or younger ages
Each covering is made of two layers of cotton and feature a nose wire to ensure a snug fit. The window is made of plastic vinyl. Unfortunately it is not possible to make these layers with three layers of cotton due to the plastic window. However, the plastic is not permeable therefore any droplets will only exit or enter via the surrounding layers of cotton.
The mask is supplied with enough elastic to either wear around the back of your head or around your ears. Simply tie the appropriate ends together, close enough to ensure a snug fit. The images showing a mask being worn shows the different ways in which you can wear it.
They can be washed in warm soapy water, or at a maximum of 30’C in a washing machine and left to dry. Do not tumble.
We recommend washing them when they arrive before use. The window can also be wiped clean with a soft cloth and antibacterial spray. Each mask will be lined with either black or white fabric, whichever suits the facing fabric best, and the same colour elastic.
Any orders for ready to ship masks placed and paid before 3pm will be shipped same day.
Please note pattern placement may vary.
Caution - This mask is NOT rated for disease control. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) has provided the following information regarding homemade face masks: The role of facemasks is for patient source control, to reduce contamination of the surrounding area when a person coughs or sneezes. Patients with confirmed or suspected COVID-19 should wear a facemask until they are isolated in a hospital or at home. Most facemasks do not effectively filter small particles from the air and do not prevent leakage around the edge of the mask when the user inhales.* When professional facemasks are not available, healthcare personnel might use homemade masks for care of patients with COVID-19 as a last resort. However, caution should be exercised when considering this option since their capability to protect healthcare personnel is unknown.
