Fabric masks – Now for sale!

Hello everyone!

Welcome to our first blog on our brand new website, and while we hope to do this a little more frequently over the coming weeks I wanted to come to you today with a very quick blog/newsflash.

We are in crazy times and as you might have seen we have seen the recommendation is to wear masks where social distancing might not be able to be followed. We actually had no intention of making masks to sell, instead we have been making them for quite a few weeks for our friends, family and some of our local community free of charge. However, we have had a number of asks, knowing our business, from people asking if we will be making masks for people to purchase.

We want to keep the price low to enable people to get what they need and must stress that these are not medical grade. However we have complied with the instructions to make handmade masks and have made them 3 layer, as if recommended. Please, for further information refer to the WHO and government guidance on masks to ensure these are the right thing for you.

With that said, we are opening up our orders for those who are interested in purchasing one for themselves. These are adult sized, make with 3 layers, washable, elasticated to fit around your ears, pleated to extended over your nose, mouth and chin and most importantly (for some of us) has a wired part at the nose to stop our glasses from steaming up.

We are keeping the price as low as we can for the cost of materials, time and postage.

The demand for these has obviously been high so at the moment we cannot accommodate individual patterns but we can accommodate colour choices.

If you have any questions feel free to message us on our Facebook or Instagram pages or email carol: hello@blanketstitch.co.uk

We hope you’re staying safe and we look forward to sharing more about our business plans going forward soon.
