Cloth Masks with Adjustable Ear Elastics (Small/Medium or Large/X-Large)
•These masks have a silicone cord lock on each elastic ear loop. The cord lock sits behind the ear and slides along the elastic to shorten or lengthen the loop, which allows you to adjust the size of the mask. Some people may achieve the best fit by removing the silicone slider. (Please see picture for instructions on replacing a cord lock that has come off the elastic.)
•The S/M size will fit a large child or a small adult. The L/XL size will fit most adults, but has a larger cloth piece to provide more coverage and to fit people who find most masks are small on them.
•These cloth masks are made 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.)
•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.)
•Please note that I cannot guarantee that the elastic I use is latex-free, so if you have a latex allergy, please buy a mask with ties rather than elastic.
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.
