Handmade with love by our great friend and dyer Jan Quarles! Here is what she says:
"These masks are non-medical grade cotton masks for your protection (and the protection of others) while you are in public. I've sewn them with cotton woven materials and they all have two layers. The reusable masks also have a pocket where you can place part of a paper towel or coffee filter. Discard the filter after use and wash your mask. The masks have been machine washed, but I prolong the life of mine by a quick hand wash in hot, soapy water.
Several other tips:
-Remove the nose wire if you wish. It's aluminum, made by a small business in Colorado.
-Fit your mask by undoing the knot in the elastic, finding the best fit, and then sliding the knot inside the side casing.
-When the elastic wears out, you can still use your mask! Use a piece of ribbon or soft string and thread the new tie through the side channels."
