I am making face coverings for people to wear when they go out in public. While these face masks are not N95 respirators, it can help protect others when you speak, cough or sneeze. Other people wearing masks can protect you from them. As always, follow CDC guidelines and stay safe!
I am making these masks in two versions.
Version 1: Front layer of cotton or cotton blend fabric. Back layer of soft flannel. $10 pick up at farm; $13 shipped to you
Version 2: Front layer of cotton or cotton blend fabric. Middle layer of non woven polyester interfacing used as a filter. Back layer of soft 100% cotton that is unbleached and undyed. $13 pick up at farm; $16 shipped to you
Both versions have soft adjustable ties that go around the ears.
Machine was warm or cold, tumble dry low.
I'd recommend a mesh laundry bag so the strings don't catch in the agitator or wrap around your clothes.
Masks are surgical style with three pleats. For best fit, an adult mask should have at least three pleats. This allows it to contour better around your nose and chin.
These masks are about 8 1/4 inches wide and 3 1/4 to 3 1/2 inches tall when folded. They will spread out to about 6 1/2 inches tall, which should comfortably cover your nose, mouth and under your chin.
All fabric was washed and dried before being made into masks. I also lock stitch at the ends of my stitching and do a double row of stitching around the outside edge.
Masks can be picked up at the farm or I can mail them to you. For mailing, just ask for a Paypal Invoice and let me know which mask(s) you want.
