Help contain the spread of virus with our cotton community face mask that is ready to wear! This finished mask has two soft fleece EAR LOOPS to hold securely in place. The EAR LOOPS are adjustable to size by pulling on fleece ribbon tails which come attached by an elastic, then tie tails in knot to keep in place, trim excess tails, and roll off elastics.

Masks are generally used to protect yourself and others from respiratory droplets, and with a rising number of asymptomatic COVID-19 cases, Favini said there’s no harm in wearing one while you’re out and about as long as it is homemade and not a medical mask, which should be reserved for health care professionals.
In order for a homemade mask to be effective, Favini said it must cover the nose and mouth since this is where respiratory droplets enter and exit. As for fabric recommendations, the thicker the better.
“In general, the thicker and more tightly woven the material is, the more protective it likely will be. We also have some reason to think that vacuum filters may be more effective in filtering the particles and might be a good middle layer between an inner and outer layer of fabric,” he said.
