- Made from two layers of a tight weave 100% cotton.
- Size info and photos here. Masks will shrink a bit in the first wash.
- Please wash and dry masks before using, and wash and dry, or thoroughly steam iron them between uses. Print will fade with repeated washing. We recommend washing masks in a mesh bag as you would wash delicates, or hand wash and hang to dry to prolong the lifespan as the elastic straps can get caught in washing machines.
- Masks have a wire nose bridge which helps keep the top part of the mask snug to the nose. Adjust this by gently bending the wire to fit your face/nose.
