•This new design is adjustable, provides a better fit, is easier to take on and off than a mask with ties, and eliminates the elastic that some people find irritating. The ear loops are part of a continuous, nylon drawstring that you adjust under your chin, which allows you to you to achieve a nearly custom fit. Because you can both bend the bridge of the nose to fit your face and cinch the adjustable cord under your chin, this mask fits with fewer gaps and thus provides better protection.
•These cloth masks are make of cotton and cotton/poly blend fabric, are are machine washable, and can be tumble dried on low.
•Each mask has a wire tie sewn into the bridge of the nose to help them fit close to the face. (Please avoid ironing over this portion of the mask if you choose to iron after washing.)
•These masks will fit an average sized adult.
•This style of mask is fully reversible. (Two contrasting fabrics are used to make it easy to identify which side of the mask was toward your face.)
A PORTION OF THE PROCEEDS FROM THE SALE OF THESE MASKS WILL BE USED TO SUPPORT MY EFFORT TO SEW AND DONATE MASK TO VARIOUS HEALTH CENTERS AND NON-PROFITS.
•The CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain as well as to help asymptomatic carriers from transmitting it to others.
•The cloth face coverings recommended are not surgical masks or N-95 respirators. Those are critical supplies that must continue to be reserved for healthcare workers and other medical first responders, as recommended by current CDC guidance.
•PLEASE NOTE: Cloth face coverings should not be placed on children under 2 years or anyone who has trouble breathing or is otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance.
