Hypoallergenic Face Masks In X-Small Size For Kids
3 Layers of Protection – Woven versus Knitted Cotton Mask Materials
Because most cotton fabric is woven, governments are recommending a higher thread count with 3 layers. A higher thread count generally does mean the fabric is denser and can in theory filter more.
Knitted cotton is measured a little differently, which is GSM (grams per square metre). All three layers of our organic mask are made from the same knitted 100% organic, 220gsm, GOTS certified, cotton fabric. In comparison, disposable masks are typically 20 – 30gsm so this gives an idea of the fabric weight.
There is no exact conversion between thread count and GSM, but in testing it performed better than a high thread count mask when used with a filter and knitted masks were significantly more breathable. Three-layer masks with high thread counts become a little difficult to breathe through. Knitted fabric provides protection while being comfortable and easier to breathe.
All three layers of this mask are made from the same knitted 100% organic, 220gsm, GOTS certified, cotton fabric. This special blend of fabric makes the mask very
breathable and comfortable to wear.
Woven fabrics are not used as they found in research and development that it significantly increases difficulty breathing. When wearing a mask with woven fabrics for an extended period (over 1 hour) or during modest physical activities, it eventually becomes difficult to breathe. This can cause wearers to remove the mask multiple times during the day.
To compensate for this, it was found that adding a third layer of our knitted fabric was able to boost protection, while making it significantly easier to breathe. These masks also include a pouch for inserting an optional filter which allows wearers to increase the level of protection at their discretion. This effectively creates 4 layers for the wearer. The stiffener also plays an important role in creating a better seal around the nose to prevent particles from being inhaled around the mask.
This 100% organic cotton face mask has three layers of fabric with a pouch for inserting an optional filter. Filters are not included with the mask and we are currently not recommending any specific filter brands. The fabric and face masks are entirely made in Canada. Our fabric is GOTS approved (Global Organic Textiles Standards) and sourced in Canada. Our dyes are also GOTS approved and toxin-free.
The patent pending cotton face mask includes a detachable strap which enables the mask to suspend around the neck if it needs to be temporarily removed. This allows the user to remove the mask when safe to do so, without placing it on a potentially contaminated surface or touching the mask. This unique feature also provides quick access to the mask if it needs to be reapplied. It is ideal for office environments (when desks are safely distanced), outdoor work environments (when the user is safely distanced), during lunch, and when driving a vehicle.
Although this mask does not have the same level of protection as an N95 mask, it limits pathogens from transmitting to others if the user coughs, sneezes, or talks closely. It also protects the user from touching their mouth and nose. This mask is designed to be more comfortable than an N95 mask, making it more ideal for long term use at work or when outside in public. Our fabric is soft, breathable, and hypoallergenic making the mask comfortable to wear.
The mask is washable, however we recommend hand washing and avoiding the dryer to preserve the integrity of the mask for a longer period of time.
For sizing instructions, please refer to the sizing image icon underneath the main product photo. If you are unsure about your size, medium is our most popular size and most likely to fit most women. For most men size L is advised unless they feel they have a smaller physique that may fit the medium size and women most commonly fit size M.
Using user measurements to decide on a size, the factory recommends that it’s better to go bigger if you’re on the upper limit of a size range. For example, a 9½” size could be either small or medium but it’s recommended that the medium size is chosen, For a measurement of 11½” that could fit medium or large you would choose the Large size for a better fit.
The ear straps may be adjusted by tying a knot in between the loop. This shortens the size of the loop creating a tighter pull and more secure fit. Note: for comfort slide the ear loop around so the knot will be inside the mask.
These face masks are sold in the following mix of colours: black, teal green, blue, grey, pink, and purple. Colours may vary depending on our availability of fabric. There is currently no option to select specific colours at this time.
