Single use face masks are often composed of synthetic plastic-based materials and are used once and thrown away. We wanted to find a safe, reusable solution and are now offering this reusable linen cotton blend mask that can be washed and used over and over.
These masks are made of tightly woven 55% cotton and 45% linen -- solidly made reusables to help you stay safe without plastic.
These cotton-linen blend masks are washable, repairable, and non-plastic. They are made with 2 layers of tightly woven fabric (as suggested by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control & Prevention) and can be washed and re-used repeatedly. They should be washed after each use. They are made as one-size-fits-all but if it is a bit large for you, you may cross the elastics and fold up the bottom layer to adjust tightly. It is important that the mask fit snugly around the nose and chin with no large gaps around the sides of the face.
PLEASE NOTE: These do not contribute to the global shortage of face masks as they are reusable and hand made and they are not N95 masks. Social distancing remains the best way to prevent the spread of any virus.
VERY IMPORTANT HEALTH NOTE: These cotton masks are unregulated and do not provide the same health protection as regulated N95 respirators or surgical masks. For more details on N95 respirators and surgical masks see this information provided by the US Food and Drug Administration: https://www.fda.gov/medical-devices/personal-protective-equipment-infection-control/n95-respirators-and-surgical-masks-face-masks
Like anything you receive online, please make sure to wash your mask when you receive it. It is recommended to mark one corner of one side of your mask with a marked dot in order to identify the front and back of your mask.
