We add a layer of silk between the two layers of 100% cotton(exclusive of thread) fabric to make this face mask as recommended by the latest research for reducing exposure to the novel corona virus. This mask will *not* prevent exposure - it will only reduce it. The mask contains a 3/16" wide bendable metal nosepiece to give a closer fit. The nosepiece is contains nickel, but there are 2 layers of fabric between the metal and skin. 1/4" black elastic ties can be used behind the head/neck,or behind the ears. We use a box pleat pattern because we feel it gives a better fit.
There is some variation in the mask size. Please use the comments to tell us the size of the person for whom this mask is intended.
This is a 3-layer mask. It's designed to inhibit the flow of air. You'll need to be able to breathe deeply to be able to use it. If your lung function is impaired and you cant take a deep breath, this may not be the mask for you.
Machine was gentle in a lingerie bag. You can use hot water, but it is the soap the kills virus. The lingerie bag helps cushion the metal nosepieces. You can put them in the dryer - the fabric is preshrunk. However,they will last longer washed and dried by hand.
