Two layer face masks comprising 100% cotton stretch towelling as an outer layer and for the inner I have used a good quality 100% cotton interlock which is similar to t shirt fabric but a bit thicker.
Elastic can be adjusted to size.

Only medical face masks can protect you against infection, but these are extremely difficult to obtain these days. That's why we would like to offer an alternative. These will not protect against infection with Covid-19, however, they can help protect others by reducing the droplets emitted into the air. By wearing a face mask, you also remind those around you to be careful.
I have done a lot of research and have decided that using a 100% cotton stretch towelling as anouter is useful because it has a long pile and for the inner I have used a good quality 100% cotton interlock which is similar to t shirt fabric but a bit thicker.
Both fabrics are stretch so are soft and mould well to your face. The sides are poppered and the elastic is supplied flat. You tie the elastic to fit you and just put the knots behind the poppered part.
Alternatively you can use anything you like as ties which can easily fit in the poppered sides ( my daughter did some finger knitted ties for hers.)
- These masks are not suitable for professional use and do not protect against viruses. They are not medically certified. We cannot, therefore, guarantee that viral or bacterial infection will be avoided using a fabric face mask and assume no liability.
- The colour fabrics may fade if washed at high temperatures. However, the fabric itself will not be damaged by these washing temperatures.
- Nonetheless, you should wash the mask every evening at a temperature of at least 60 degrees to destroy any bacteria or viruses.
