This mask is made from 100% natural cotton with cotton twill ties which makes it adjustable to different sizes. There is also a piece of wire at the top to form to the nose to create a better seal. In addition, it has an opening in the back to insert a filter if you'd like as well as contrasting red thread so that you can differentiate between the front and the back. This would also be a great canvas to dye for a fun project!
It is 8.5" x 3.25" flat with two pleats and ties that are about 15" on each side.
The main purpose of selling these is to fund mask donations to medical professionals. Fabric masks are not a substitute for N95 or PPE, however, as supplies diminish it has been recommended by the CDC that everyone wear masks to reduce transmission. Cotton has been tested and shown to be the most breathable material while filtering out 69-74% of particles. For every mask sold, another mask will be donated. If you would like to donate your mask as well just add that in the notes and we will include it in our donations!
Care: This item is reusable and washable to reduce waste. It can be machine washed and tumble dried, however, if you do this it's recommended that it is done with minimal other items so that the nose wire does not warp too much. The wire can be reformed and straightened afterwards. But, hand washing and air drying would be best.
