Cotton Face Masks
Cindy Cloward shares information about the importance and effectiveness of using high-quality quilting cotton when making face masks.
A new update about quilting cotton as material for homemade face masks was posted by the New York Times, April 5, 2020.
"The best-performing designs were a mask constructed of two layers of high-quality, heavyweight 'quilter’s cotton,' a two-layer mask made with thick batik fabric, and a double-layer mask with an inner layer of flannel and outer layer of cotton."- Tara Parker-Pope, New York Times.
Our Riley Blake Designs high-quality Cotton and Flannel meet these criteria.
