The masks are made out of 2 layers of cotton fabric with a pocket to add a additional filter (paper towel, Blue shop towel, etc.) and attach around the ears via 2 elastic loops. They are machine washable and come in 3 sizes (child, medium, large). These masks are NOT MEDICAL GRADE. They are simple cotton masks designed to help slow the spread of covid -19.
Due to available fabric the back panel color may be different than in the photos. The Front panel will be the same in the photos, however the back panel may vary and is up to the sewers discretion.
The sizing: the Child size is for children or smaller sized people’s with very small faces.
Medium: fits smaller and medium sized heads/faces.
Large: fits most adults with medium- large sized heads/faces.
The CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies), especially in areas of significant community-based transmission.
CDC also advises the use of simple cloth face coverings to slow the spread of the virus and help people who may have the virus and do not know it from transmitting it to others. Cloth face coverings fashioned from household items or made at home from common materials at low cost can be used as an additional, voluntary public health measure.
Cloth face coverings should not be placed on young children under age 2, anyone who has trouble breathing, or is unconscious, incapacitated or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance.
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.
