Quilted Face Masks

A quilted face mask, with two layers of cotton cloth and a layer of cotton batting, provides superior filtration vs. most other homemade masks.

These quilted face masks are $25 each. They have an adjustable nose wire for a good fit, and a cord to tie it snugly to your face.

I'm working with the materials that I have in stock, so colors and quantities may be limited. I will update the photos to reflect current inventory.

Women's / Medium

Men's / Large

To order, see the bottom of this page. Once I confirm your order, I will ship it to you, or you may pick it up at my home on St. Croix, US Virgin Islands, at Coakley Bay condos, on East End Road, two miles east of Cheeseburgers restaurant.

If you pick up your order from my home, then for social distancing during pick-ups, I will not meet you in person. At an agreed time, I will place your order outside my front door, where you can pick it up, and leave your payment (if paying by cash or check).

I disinfect each mask, in its packaging, before you receive it, by baking the mask-and-package at 170°F for 30 minutes.

To find your size: Use a ruler to measure from your chin to the tip of your nose.

Women's / Medium: About 3-1/4 inches from chin to tip of nose

Men's / Large: About 4 inches from chin to tip of nose

Mask is taller than the measurements above, and will go from just under the chin to just under the bridge of the nose.

To put on the mask:

    1) Place the lower cord loop over your head and lower the cord to the back of your neck
    2) Put the mask over your mouth and nose
    3) Tie the upper cord ends behind your head, over your ears

Fit the mask closely to your face, and adjust it so as much air as possible is going through the mask while inhaling and exhaling, and not leaking around the edges. You can bend the built-in nose wire to conform the mask to your nose, you can adjust the mask up or down on your face, you can adjust the cords for tightness, and you can move the cords up or down the back of your neck and head. It doesn’t have to be a perfect fit, since any face covering is better than none.

Use your mask when in close proximity to others. Avoid touching the front or back of the mask with your hands, and handle the mask by the cords as much as possible. Wash your hands before and after handling the mask. Do not share your mask with others.

Care and cleaning: Wash mask after every 8 hours of use. Tie cord ends together first to prevent them from slipping out, then machine wash in hot water with laundry detergent, and tumble dry hot. To extend the life of the mask, hand-wash and hang to dry, instead of machine washing/drying. You may also disinfect your mask between uses by baking it in a clean oven for 10 minutes at 170°F. (I bake it for 30 minutes at 170°F before you receive it. Based on a report published in the Lancet Microbe on April 2, 2020, just 5 minutes at 158°F inactivates the SARS-CoV-2 virus.)

To maintain best filtration and to prevent fibers from degrading, do not bleach or use harsh chemicals, and do not attempt to disinfect in a microwave oven.

Material: 100% pre-washed cotton fabric, 100% cotton batting, cotton/nylon cord or string, copper nose wire

Returns: Returns and exchanges are allowed only for defective merchandise, or if the item you received is not the item you ordered. Please return within 7 days of receiving your order.
