In response to the Coronavirus Disease, the Center for Disease Control has recommended that all individuals wear a cloth face mask or covering to slow the spread of COVID-19, especially when going to places such as grocery stores where maintaining 6 feet of social distance at all times is challenging.
Cloth face coverings can be fashioned at home using cloth and rubber bands or hair ties, but a quality construction with multiple layers of tightly woven cotton is best. Surgical masks in public are not necessary and should be saved for essential medical personnel. It is recommended that the mask fit snugly over your nose and mouth, and be unable to remove the mask on accident under normal everyday activities.
We have worked tirelessly in our own Hutch Studio to create a mask worthy of Cricket Island, and we have finally found what we believe to be the best match of quality, construction, and design, to aid in the protection of public health.
Constructed from double-layer tightly woven cotton fabric, with a pocket for a filter, and double bias cotton edging and ties, these masks exceed the requirements for general public use, and are adorably cute to boot! During these scary times, we continue our mission of bringing comfort, kindness, and Glad Dreams to all those we can, and making a mask that can bring happiness and smiles (even if hidden) is just another way we hope to continue along this path. We wish everyone to stay safe and healthy, and don't forget to wash your hands!
