Whether you are staying home and social distancing or reopening, face covers are a way to supplement other good practices to limit the spread of disease. Face coverings are encouraged or required by many retailers and airlines. Masks are not magic and you should continue other important habits like frequent hand washing, avoiding touching your face, and social distancing (when possible).
This is the For-a-Nurse-by-a-Nurse pattern developed by Nursemade.co. Two layers of woven cotton have side pleats, chin pleats and a nose dart for shaping. An aluminum nose piece allows for an adjustable tight fit. Cotton fabric straps tie around the head and will not degrade when washing at any temperature (unlike elastic). This mask does not have a filter pocket but can be worn over an N95 mask to extend its life. Thanks to the pleats and flexible nose piece this mask fits most faces comfortably. A snug nose fit can reduce or eliminate fog for people who wear glasses or sunglasses.
Mask front: 100% cotton fabric (design varies)
Mask lining and ties: 100% cotton fabric
Flexible nose piece: aluminum, made in the USA
Thread: Aurifil Forty3 and 50 wt, 100% cotton thread
Please wash used masks regularly! Feel free to wash and dry normally. All fabric has been pre-washed and dried with scent-free detergent to minimize shrinking or bleeding. The mask straps tend to tangle in washing machines and dryers so be careful when removing. You may also find using a mesh laundry bag helpful, but that’s certainly not required!
All masks are made in small batches in Washington, DC. Please allow 24-48 hours for orders to be fulfilled.Local customers can pick up orders in NW DC.Mask orders ship free domestically(US only) via USPS First Class mail, with the option to upgrade to USPS Priority Mail.
