**To have the wire added to your mask, please add the "ADD-Nose Wire" to your cart Per-Mask in addition to the Mask. (i.e. add 3 times for 3 masks) see additional listing or variant.
Masks are handmade, pleated, 2 layers of 100% cotton fabric. Elastic is 2mm 100% soft knit nylon. Machine Washable.
As an economical option, my masks have a small pinch pleat sewn at the nose to help keep the mask close to the face. As an upgraded option, I now offer the Nose Wire option! Wire is sewn in place inside of the mask and can be bent to bridge of nose for a firm and secure fit.
Among many uses, these masks can be used as covers to other medical masks to prolong to life of those masks during this shortage. They can be used by healthy persons when visiting/working with those with the elderly or with compromised immune systems. They can be used by workers and the general public not in the front lines of healthcare to help prevent the spread of germs. Please wash before first use and after every time they are worn/exposed. They are washable and reusable!
