Reusable Cotton Face Mask- $6.95 each (cost of labor and materials) plus shipping. You will receive a shipping notification with tracking when your order ships.
We have made the decision to temporarily shift to making reusable medical masks due to the vast demand during the covid-19 pandemic.
Our pattern uses 2 layers of 100% cotton that creates a pouch for a filter to be slipped into for optimal protection and an inserted covered wire for a molded fit around the nose. If you don't have a mask filter, you can use any type of 'non-woven' material. Stabilizer, Pellon, quilting interfacing, or even cut up a furnace filter (non-fiberglass!) into approx. 4"x 5" rectangles.
EFFECTIVENESS: According to researchers at Cambridge, 2 layers of 100% cotton (with no filter added) catches 71% of regular bacteria and 51% of corona virus size bacteria. Surgical masks under the same test caught 97% of regular bacteria and 89% corona virus.
With a filter added to the mask, you can bring the effectiveness up to nearly equal that of a surgical mask. These can also be worn over the top of a disposable mask to preserve the longevity or used in areas where chances of contact with the virus are low to preserve n95 masks for the ‘front lines’.
*Our masks are not tested or certified in any way, but are designed to meet many acceptable medical standards for a cloth mask w/filter. They do not guarantee protection, but studies show that cotton masks do help prevent droplet transmission and can greatly reduce the spread of the virus. The CDC is now recommending cloth masks to be worn by the general population of the US.
Masks are available periodically on a different page! One FILTER will be automatically included...
