This handmade face covering is made as an adult large, which is the most popular choice for adults, fitting most without any problems.
Each mask is made of two layers of cotton, with an opening either side to add a filter if you wish to do so to make it three layers. They also come with a nose wire.
The mask is supplied with enough elastic threaded to either wear around the back of your head, or if you would prefer it around your ears, snip the continuous piece at the top and tie the two loose ends on the same side 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 40’C in a washing machine and left to dry. Do not tumble.
We recommend washing them when they arrive before use. 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.
Pattern placement will vary mask by mask.
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.
