Silk Hemp Blend Mask with Elastic Loops
RESTOCK on Sundays. Our lightest weight and softest mask - perfect for hot summer days- with both the inner and outer layer made from a natural silk/hemp blend.
Why silk? Researchers at the University of Cincinnati "found that when used for protection of the face, silk is the most effective at preventing the penetration of droplets, and the least absorptive of water, because of its intensely hydrophobic character compared to the other fabrics tested. This characteristic, coupled with its breathability, and the fact that it does not trap water, makes it ideal for protecting respirators under conditions of clinical exposure, and as a material for home-made for face coverings. The other advantages include its inherent antiviral, antibacterial and antimicrobial properties, as well as the thinness of the material even when used in multiple layers. Silk also does not irritate the skin or increase local humidity around the face beneath it, making it suitable for prolonged wear, and avoiding accidental stimulation of face touching."
These organic hemp/silk-blend masks are non-medical, reusable, washable, and made with elastic ear loops and an adjustable nose bridge. The fabrics are chemical and dye free- all natural and hypoallergenic. Our masks are designed with two layers of natural silk/hemp 4oz and a pocket for a filter, such as a HEPA filter, inserted within the fabric.

HOW YOU USE YOUR MASK
Insert a disposable filter into the inner pocket of the mask. Look for HEPA grade filters found in air purifiers or air-conditioning units. Vacuum cleaner bags are effective, and paper materials such as coffee filters can be used
Wash your hands before putting on your mask and after removing it. Do not touch your face when wearing your mask.
Ensure a snug fit across your face without any gaps. Tie or adjust the straps to fit the mask to your face to ensure air flows only through the mask and filter. It is recommended to use double-sided tape to secure the mask on the nose and cheeks.
Dispose filter & reuse mask: After use, the filter should be disposed and the mask should be washed at high temperature in a washing machine.
Please remember that use of face masks is not intended to replace other recommended measures to stop the community spread of COVID-19, such as physical distancing, washing your hands and refraining from touching your face. Follow the latest advice of the CDC and your own health care professionals as to how best to keep yourself safe. For more information on how to wear a cloth mask, please visit the CDC website.
