Luxe Linen Face Mask - w/Nose Wire (Medium)
UPDATE: This is now ONE mask with gray on one side and blue on the other. This not only gives you two styles in one, but you'll be able to better tell front from back.
After an asthma attack in a store early in the pandemic, I realized I really needed to have something better than what I had in various masks I had bought online at that time and linen is a wonderfully breathable fabric.
I also wear glasses (or I'm supposed to!) so I've added nose wire to this version.
These will be made as I have time, after the cotton masks get to the people who need them most, so stock may be limited at times. Please let me know if I run out and you need one, I'll make more!

A NOTE ABOUT LINEN - You may feel like your mask shrinks after washing, but linen has a unique way of crinkling up the fibers--it's why your grandma's napkins always had to be ironed. When you press the fabric with a hot iron, and a little steam, it will loosen up those fibers and the fabric will expand back to it's regular shape.

Dimensions are approximate and may vary slightly, as is the nature with handmade items.
This mask is of course, does not offer medical grade protection and is not marketed as such. This is very basic minimal protection as recommended by the CDC. Please continue social distancing.
