After a bunch of research and pattern testing here is the mask we settled on!
- Two layers of tight weave quilters cotton with a pocket that allows you to insert an additional filter (coffee filter, vacuum filter or panty liner are recs).
- Finished with soft bias tape that ties around head and around base of neck. We tried with the elastic and found the pulling on the ears to be uncomfortable and difficult to get a good fit.
- A small wire inserted in a channel on the nose allows for close fit and is especially nice when wearing with glasses.
- It's adjustable and will fit older children and adults (kids pictured are 10 and 12)
- It is of utmost importance that medical personnel, vulnerable populations, and people who actually have the virus are first in line when it comes to medical-grade personal protective equipment, or PPE.
- This mask is not medical-grade and is not intended to protect wearers from getting sick, but rather, to prevent them from spreading the virus to others.
- Wear your mask as an additive to social distancing, not a substitute.
- Universal mask-wearing will help prevent the transmission of the virus and flatten the curve.
- The mask should reach above the bridge of the nose and below the chin. Fit is important. If a mask is going to be reused, it must be kept clean. Wash regularly. Hanging to dry is a nice options as sunlight is very germicidal.
The masks were delivered timely and are pretty comfortable- I only wear for an hour at most. Grocery shopping, or short trips around others. And they’ve held up well to washing. And the fabrics are lovely.
The face masks are awesome. Thanks to those who made them & for selling them. Excellent & quick service!
The perfect masks
The masks are great! My ears were getting so sore after full days at work wearing them. I had been waiting to see the masks back in the Dig shop so I could order a couple. I am so glad I saw them in stock! The fleece is soft and doesn’t irritate my face and the ties are perfect and keep my ears happy. Thanks Dig & Co crew! Much love
Wonderful quality and stylish. Love the pocket to add a filter!
Amazing Face Mask
This mask is AMAZING quality. I’ve already washed it several times and it holds its shape perfectly every time. The material is also very breathable. I love the nose wire too!
comfy and stylish
We tied our strings into loops so that they are easy to loop over our ears for bike rides (the knotted string behind the head hurts my 9 and 6 year olds' heads with helmets on). They are easy to fold over as well to fit onto smaller faces. :)
As always, the best with DIG + CO!
