Cotton Mask - Canada Stripe
Cotton "surgical style" mask with pleats.
Two different prints to be able to quickly determine which side is which.
Includes bendable nose wire (removable and replaceable) and pocket for inserting an extra layer.
Choose your attachment method!
Single loop cotton tie - (loops around back of neck, ties at top of head) for better longevity through frequent hot washes. The ties are not sewn directly to the mask, allowing for them to be replaced if necessary. Best for long term wear and longevity of the attachment method
Elastic ear loops - 1/8" elastic to loop around your ears. The elastic will stretch over time, all elastic ear loops masks come with a free replacement set of loops. See our video demonstration for how to replace them.
Elastic head loops - 1/4" elastic to loop around the back of your head and neck with a similar fit to the the single loop cotton tie but quicker on and off. Middle option for longevity of the attachment method. The loops are supplied to an average 30-32" total length (including whats inside the channel), but can be tightened (as much as you want) or loosened 4-6" as the total length supplied is 36".
Machine wash (any temperature) and dry.
For best results, wash in a garment bag and cold water for elastic lifespan - note - many news articles suggest laundry in hot water, but then conclude that simple cold water and soap are enough to kill the virus.
Use your own judgement and risk tolerance to determine your wash temperature (if you are washing your clothes in cold, your mask should be fine too).
Iron/press on cotton (high) setting if you don't like a wrinkly look - note - avoid ironing over the plastic coated nose piece as it will melt if you do so. Either iron around it or remove it before ironing.
See our blog article for more information on attachment methods and care instructions including a video on how to iron your mask.
Wash prior to first use and after taking off for any reason.
Again, please don't even try it on before washing. Spack Craft is doing everything possible to ensure products are coming from a clean and healthy home, but its best practice to wash before wearing to reduce the risk factor even further.
