These are fabric masks, not intended to be used in a medical workplace, only for general coverage when you need to leave the house. Please remember to wash your hands and keep a distance of 1.5m from people in public.
These face masks are made using high grade quilters fabric in a mix of cotton & poly cotton. Triple layered, and made to contour the face. No filters, just wash them daily, and also suitable for the dryer, which will help sanitise the masks. These come sanitised with natural 99% ethanol and left to dry, and packaged in cello bags.
The full neck sock mask is made with 2 layers and purposely made for use as a face cover. (min requirement is 2 layer) This is suited to people who can not wear elastic around the ears due to sensitivity, injury or hearing aid products.
If you need adjusting, tie a knot in the elastic to tighten the mask. We only make standard sizes, and can not make tailored to each person. No returns due to health and safety. thank you

INFORMATION VIA DHS ON CLOTH FACE MASKS:
What are the different types of face masks and which one should I use?
The term ‘face mask’ includes cloth masks and single-use face masks (commonly called surgical masks). Both masks are suitable for use to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).
Cloth masks are any nose and mouth covering made of washable fabric. We recommend a cloth mask made of three layers of a mix of breathable fabrics to ensure adequate protection. It does not need to be surgical quality to be effective.
Surgical masks are made with a non-woven meltblown polypropylene layer and available in various levels of protection. These are single use masks only so can’t be washed and used again.
There are other types of masks and respirators (such as P2 or N95). These are not recommended for use in the community and not advised to be used outside of healthcare or specific industries under health advice.
Are face masks effective for protecting against coronavirus (COVID-19) transmission?
Face masks have been recommended around the world for use by the community to reduce transmission of coronavirus (COVID-19).
Your best protection is still to keep 1.5 metres apart from other people, to wash your hands thoroughly and regularly, and cough and sneeze into a tissue or your elbow.
Face masks are helpful in containing droplets when people cough, reducing the likelihood of spreading the virus. For the community, both cloth masks and surgical masks are effective in reducing the transmission of COVID-19
