We’ve been advised to make our own facemasks from fabric and save the manufactured surgical masks for our medics, which is quite right.
I’ve have added a facemask pattern so you can make your own, if that’s not something you want to do, I am also making them for as long as I have the materials to do so. So please subscribe to our newsletter and send me an email at Info@lolastarr.co.uk if you require one and I will do my best to for fill every request.
Making your own facemask
The best fabric for homemade masks to use is a tightly woven 100% cotton fabric. I’ve used denim (100% cotton), a heavy weight and a good option. These can also be machine washed.
Homemade masks, rather resemble loose-fitting surgical masks, also known as facemasks, that do NOT meet the N95 standards. #covid19 #coronavirus
Findings suggest that a homemade mask should only be considered an as last resort to prevent droplet transmission from infected individuals, but it would be better than no protection and lets other people know to keep their distance.
