Deluxe Fabric Face masks handmade in Melbourne with soft braided elastic and non woven polypropylene
NEW - upgraded to Deluxe Fabric Face Mask 💖
I have made this new deluxe style of facemask using 3 layers of material. The outer layers are cotton fabric. The middle layer is a non-woven polypropylene which is a DHHS compliant fabric, having water/moisture repelling qualities and it also helps to give the mask structure which keeps it away from your nose and mouth.
I'm now using a braided elastic that is latex free and lovely and soft against your face and ears. It doesn't even feel like I have anything over my ears when I'm wearing my mask 🤩
To help with a nicer fit on your face, I sew in a thin strip of wire (a pipecleaner wire) over the bridge of the nose and along the cheek. This can help the facemask mould to the shape of your face and can also minimise the amount your glasses fog up. The wire is now 15cm long (twice as long as I was previously using).
These are NOT medical grade masks, however they have been made following the DHHS guidelines.

Warm machine wash when you first receive them and then after every single use. If the elastic earloops are too long, just tie a little knot in them to shorten them for the mask to fit more snugly.
