Face coverings made with boardshort fabric are only made in size large. When testing these I found them to provide great protection but are slightly less breathable. Therefore I would recommend their use on adults only. I also will only be making these with 2 layers, one is the boardshort fabric and lined with the woven cotton.
Item is to be made. I will be sewing masks with priority, if ordered before Sunday my aim is to get them out for delivery by Wednesday. If you order after sunday but before Wednesday I will do my best to get them sewn and out on Wednesday but it might not always be possible. Please do not purchase other “to be made” items with the face covering listings – you can purchase other instock items though
Ties may not match ties shown in picture.
I will only be shipping once per week and will be using fastway who are following social distancing guidelines while delivering your parcel.
These are not medical grade PPE, and should not replace social distancing, hand washing and staying home (where possible).
They come with a pocket so you can insert a filter of your choice, (filters are not included). The masks include 1 layer each of boardshort woven, 100% woven cotton and a non woven bonded fibrous fabric. You can find more information on why combining different fabrics in each mask creates the best homemade masks <<<here>>>.
I have made my masks with cotton lycra ties because I find that the ties give a firmer fit around the nose and are more adjustable. I have also left the ends of the ties unfinished should you wish to trim them to suit you better.
I do not recommend for use in children under 5.
When removing the mask please refrain from touching the front of the mask, and wash after each use. Please see the European CDC webpage for information on using masks in the community. Also see <<<here>>> for more information on the use of face coverings during this pandemic
