Although we all desire to be done with the mask wearing, the mandates still exists, despite our desire to get back to normal. It is hard, I get it, but I have to admit, I am grateful that I do not have to wear a mask for 8-10 hrs every day such as those who work in healthcare, retail and other industries. Even my husband, who works for our local newspaper is required to wear one all day, yet fortunately he can wear the cloth-made ones.
Above are two masks that are extra that I will be adding to my inventory for sale, each at $20 each. As always, the masks I make, are made with quality, 100% cotton (non-stretch) fabric. Some cottons say that they are 100% cotton, yet they have a stretch, which to make it stretchy, will have elastane. What is elastane? Elastane is made of polyurethane, which is a polymer produced by a chemical reaction of a polyester with a diisocyanate. Personally, I have a hard time breathing through any type of polyester, as most people do. Hence my focus on making sure the materials I use are 100%, non-stretchy cottons.
Below are the custom requested 100% black cotton masks, to be worn over the head and behind the neck.
The photo to the right are the new set that I made for myself. I might not go out much, but when I do, I like to have variation that either matches my attire and/or my mood.
I remain hopeful that we will soon be seeing each other’s faces soon, sharing hugs and handshakes, until then, may we each do our part in respecting one another.
