The leaves are falling, there’s a chill in the air, and you know what that means: time for Autumn face masks. Is it weird to want something new to reflect the change in seasons? It makes perfect sense to me. And of course, like our other mask options, these are soft, comfortable, and washable.
You know I’m a fan of color, so I made our first round of masks in bright patterns. But if you prefer earthy tones or more understated patterns, we’ve got you covered with our Autumn face masks. Hey, if we have to wear them, shouldn’t they be our favorite, fun colors? Well, maybe they aren’t really “fun” to wear, but at least they’re as comfortable as possible because I make them with:
- 100% cotton fabric
- Flannel-backed for softness (but can have thinner fabric if you prefer a cooler mask!)
- Pleats for better fit over your nose
- Flat elastic that doesn’t dig into your ears
I also make them with Halloween harlequin and gold berry patterns because they make me smile (yep, under the mask where no one can even tell). If they make other people smile, that’s just a bonus! Is there a pattern that would make YOU smile? Let me know! I may be able to make a custom mask for you.
Did you know?
For every mask sold, we donate another. We’ve donated hundreds of masks to nursing homes, soup kitchens, and yes, even customers. In fact, we add a free mask to every order. In September we will be including a Flavor of the Month lip balm (in Candy Apple) and a matching apple gingham face mask!
Washing your fabric Autumn face masks
Our Autumn face masks are 100% cotton and have been pre-washed. After each use they can be washed by hand, or popped into the wash along with your other laundry, then either air or machine dried. Allow to dry completely before use. If you choose to iron the pleats of the mask, please take care not to iron the elastic loops; heat can degrade them or even scorch or burn them!
Of course, we are not claiming that our masks can prevent COVID-19. We are simply following the CDC’s guidelines for wearing cloth face coverings to slow the transmission of coronavirus by asymptomatic or pre-symptomatic individuals. Masks should not take the place of social distancing; please follow your community guidelines to protect yourself and others.
