Home-Made Cloth Facemasks 2020

I design and sell reusable 3 layer cloth masks in Perth. They are either 3 x cotton or a mix of cotton, linen, silk, chiffon or poly-cotton to support the electrostatic effect. I use plain thread through elastic which can be replaces; and make my own wire nose bands using wire and heat-resistent aluminum tape. Email in the contact page.

I started making face masks in February 2020 for family and friends. Istarted off sewing by hand, because I didnt have a machine, but then as people asked for them, I got another machine. I try to read a bit and learned that there are some benefits to mixing your fabrics in cloth masks to combine thread count with electrostatic filtration. Fabrics like silk and chifon and linen perform well but cost the earth. Nobody can make a claim about the efficiency of cloth masks, but a tight fit, a mix of at least 3 layers of different fabrics are appearing to also protect the wearer and not just they have contact with.
