These facemasks are to be worn to help people who may have the virus and do not know it, from transmitting it to others. The facemasks are made from 3 layers - the top (patterned layer) is a cotton blend, there is a middle layer of non woven interfacing and the back lining is 100% cotton. There is a filter pocket should you wish to place an additional layer into your mask.
Nose shaping for a better fit
- The elastic is set so it goes behind your head and neck. It is loosely tied so that you can adjust the length of the elastic/tightness of the mask. Simply reknot the elastic to the desired length, trim the ends and then move the elastic round so that the knot is hidden in the edge binding.
- If you prefer the elastic to go behind your ears, just cut it in two and knot the elastic to form two ear loops.
Choice of 3 sizes and suggested wearers - Small (teen), Medium (women), Large (men)

How to Use:
The facemask must be washed before you first use it and wash after every subsequent use at 60 degrees centigrade in the washing machine.
Be careful not to touch your eyes, nose, and mouth when removing their face covering and wash hands immediately after removing.
Please note that these are non-medical facemasks and are used to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus COVID-19 as they are designed to reduce the dispersal of potentially infected droplets into your surroundings.
It has been recommended by some authorities that there may be some benefit in wearing a facial covering when you leave the house and enter enclosed spaces as some people can have the virus but experience no symptoms (asymptomatic infection). Wearing a face covering therefore may provide some level of protection against transmission to other people in close proximity.
