Derek Jarman fabric face mask, pink, ladies
This is a ladies or teenager size face mask featuring my own design Jarman fabric in a soft powder pink, lined with a simple floral fabric.
This is a non-medical grade handmade face mask. It is made using 100% cotton, double layered, with wire nose grip and elastic ear loops which are supplied loosely tied for you to tighten up to your own required snug fit.
My masks do not come with filters or the option to insert filters. If your situation requires you to wear a filtered mask, this is not a suitable option for you.
Please note that due to the personal nature of this item, I do not accept any returns, unless it has arrived damaged.
We are being encouraged to wear face masks in public to reduce transmission of viruses/germs which this handmade face mask will only provide a minimal physical barrier. It will also have the benefit of helping you avoid touching your face.
MASK USE / CARE
The best advice seems to be wear your mask for one occasion out in public, the supermarket etc where social distancing may be an issue, remove carefully before entering your car or home, have some sort of bag with you to store the ‘potentially soiled mask’ in as you take it home and then wash immediately, remembering to wash your hands of course after putting the mask in to wash.
How to care for your mask:
*Masks with wire in for nose grip – I recommend removing the wire pipe cleaner before washing, (and replace when washed and dry)
*Hand wash or machine wash on a gentle cycle (40 degrees C)
*Hang to dry, do not tumble dry.
*Reshape whilst damp and Iron at a low to medium temperature
*Do not iron the elastic ear loops
To handwash the mask you can place it in soapy water and soak for two minutes, then wash and rinse. Any soap or laundry detergent will do. Wash your hands well afterwards and anything else you have touched after removing the mask. Never reuse your mask without washing it first.
