Fabric Face Masks

Thank you for visiting our site for fabric face masks. In February, 2020, due to a shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE) within hospitals, we became aware of the significant need for other options, specifically home-sewn, fabric masks with effective filters, as a backup to the equipment they were being provided. My wife, Dianna, is a Neonatal Respiratory Therapist. At that time, and in the month following, many hospitals were not allowing employees to wear masks at work because of the shortage and CDC recommendations. Once it became apparent that it was necessary to protect employees any way possible, most hospitals became open to the concept of allowing home-sewn masks in the hospital setting.

Our thought was that if we could provide home-sewn masks to hospital workers, their chance of exposure would significantly be reduced. Thus started our hospital mask donation project. To date, we've sewn and donated hundreds of masks, and healthcare workers have been overwhelmingly grateful. Hospitals have been receiving donations of many home-sewn masks, but the feedback we're getting from healthcare workers is that out of all the masks they have received, they prefer ours because of comfort, fit, and effectiveness.

While we continue with our donation program, we are now also selling masks. Blessed with our beautiful farm, we spend our days sewing masks, caring for animals, and creating a huge garden to sustain us in the months ahead.

This site will be dedicated to posting links to our videos on mask/filter care, informational sites, and videos about how to sew your own masks and obtain supplies. We strive to be a resource of information and support during this difficult time. While we haven't invested in the technology to allow online orders and payments, this site should at the very least give you the information for ordering your own mask.

Basic Mask Information

There are two reasons to wear a mask:

1) To prevent infecting others. This is especially important with the latest information showing that up to 60% of those infected with Covid19 may be asymptomatic. Most any cloth mask can achieve this, and as time goes on we'll see more and more establishments requiring a basic mask to be in their establishment (example: Costco is requiring masks for all patrons effective May 4, 2020).

2) To help prevent getting infected from others. This is where a good fitting mask with a filter is important. It is especially important that anyone in the high-risk groups wear this type of mask. This is the type of mask we are making. Please note, effective 07/17/20, custom filters are now optional due to a shortage of filter material.

There is ongoing research into the most effective homemade filters. Based on information provided by materials experts, we designed a filter using MERV15 filter media (see the link to the video below on Mask & Filter Care for more information about MERV) with a textured polyester front. This combination may provide protection against the virus if used and handled correctly, and could be a good alternative for those who do not have N95 masks (which are rightly being reserved for those on the frontlines of this battle).

Our Masks

  • Made from 100% preshrunk cotton.

  • CDC approved pleated design with pocket for filter; soft, 100% cotton muslin lining; bendable nose-piece (dual coated wire, will not rust), and adjustable ear loops which can be hooked together to wear behind the head instead of over ears.

  • Optional custom reuseable filter made from MERV15 non-woven filter material with a textured polyester front.

  • Masks can be handwashed (some healthcare workers are washing in the washing machine and having good results. If you wash in the washing machine, a mesh laundry bag is recommended and hanging to dry). Filters can be disinfected for reuse. Instructions are included.
