After making very many face masks for Friends and Family we have decided to offer them for sale here on our website.
Price Includes Postage
After much research on the making of effective face masks over the last few weeks I have come up with what I feel is the most comfortable and easy to use style, which offers a good deal of protection for the wearer and surrounding people (with two layers of fine non-woven interlining). This is not a NHS mask with 95% protection, and is not claiming to offer that amount of protection.
Most Fabric and All Linings are 100% Cotton (except outer fabrics 6 and 18 which are poly/cotton).
Our masks are fully lined and have two layers of non-woven interlining inside.
We now have two options of fitting:- The Ear Loop Mask, and the Head Band Mask.
The Ear loop Mask has soft elastic loops to fit behind the ears, advantages are that the mask can be put on and off quickly. The Head Band Mask has elastic straps that fit around the head and the nape of the neck and attach with a loop and a button for easy fitting and removal. This is a little more fiddly to put on, but more comfortable if worn for a longer time.
The nose shape fits high on the nose and a nose bar of aluminium is inserted over the bridge of the nose in it's own pocket, ensuring a snug fit over the nose bridge. This helps to stop your glasses from getting fogged up and also contains your germs within, and other germs out. The mask fits down over the chin to make a good fit. They are washable, just pop them in the machine (maybe in an undies bag, as there is a metal bar) or wash by hand. Ironing you mask will kill more germs, but please do not iron the elastic....it melts with a very hot iron.
We have an extensive fabric stash for my embroidery, and we are using these fabrics to offer you a wide choice of colours and patterns.
Please choose your fabric and order it by the fabric code number,
and also the size, choose Large (Male) or Medium (Female).
I am also wondering if anyone might be interested in having their initials/name embroidered on the side.... This will of course cost more, but I can offer it if you want. I am also planning to make a "Gold" and or "Silver" mask for special occasions as I cannot resist a bit of sparkle! Let me know if this is of interest to you.
