High Thread Count Cotton Mask with Built-In Silk Filter & Nose Bridge Wire (3 colorways)

Size Guide

We designed this attractive 4-layer cotton/silk mask after a study reported that, of the fabrics tested, a 600 thread count cotton combined with two layers of natural silk achieved among the best results. Our mask has a filter pocket for an optional additional filter of your choice and a removable nose bridge wire to improve fit.  Limited quantities available. We are working hard to make more masks as they sell out so, if the one you want is sold out, you can contact us to place an advance order for our next batch.  

To cover the cost of making and shipping our masks, we are not able to apply discount codes to mask purchases.

    • What you need to know:

      Designed to be attractive, comfortable and easy to wear, these masks include one layer of 600 or 625 thread count cotton and two layers of natural silk. To help you obtain a good fit, each mask has a cotton twill nose bridge placket containing a removable wire pipe cleaner so you can fit the mask around the bridge of your nose.  We also include a filter pocket into which you can insert an optional additional filter of your choice. Choose either a soft white cotton twill or stretchy jersey ties to keep the mask securely in place.  (See "Specs" tab for more details.)

      Our choice of this fabric combination was inspired by a study published on April 24, 2020 in ACS Nano, the journal of the American Chemical Society, which found that, of the fabrics tested, a combination of one layer of 600 thread count woven cotton sheeting (which provides a mechanical filter) with 2 layers of natural silk (which provide an electrostatic barrier) achieved among the best results.


      You can learn more about this study on our blog.

      Although we based our fabric choice on the ACS Nano study, our cotton/silk masks have not been tested and we cannot make any representations about their effectiveness. Please also keep in mind that our masks are not intended to be a substitute for medical-grade Personal Protective Equipment.    

      We recommend that you wash your mask before wearing it and avoid touching it or your face once it is on. (See "Specs" tab for washing instructions.)

      Please remember that the decision to use this mask is solely your own and that use of cloth face masks is not intended to replace other recommended measures to stop the community spread of diseases or viruses, such as social distancing, washing your hands and refraining from touching your face. Follow the latest advice of the CDC and your own health care professionals as to how best to keep yourself safe.

      We also make a high thread count cotton mask in this same design without the silk layers.

    • Specs:

      • Our gray masks have a 600 thread count cotton outside layer with two middle layers of natural silk and, to protect the silk, an inside layer of cotton which is a lower thread count to maintain maximum breathability.  Choose either soft 100% cotton white twill ties or ties made from a stretchy blue heather poly/lycra knit.  
      • Our geometric pattern mask has a 625 thread count outside layer with two middle layers of natural silk and, to protect the silk, an inside layer of cotton which is a lower thread count to maintain maximum breathability.  Choose either soft 100% cotton white twill ties or ties made from a stretchy blue heather poly/lycra knit.
      • Our leopard print mask has an inside layer of 600 thread count gray cotton with two middle layers of natural silk. The outside leopard-pattern layer is a 400 thread count cotton. Choose either soft 100% cotton white twill ties or ties made from a stretchy 92% recycled rayon/8% spandex knit.
      • The nose bridge placket is cotton twill and comes with a removable pipe cleaner (folded in half to give you a firm hold).
      • Our masks may be hand washed with soap or machine washed. Please remove the nose wire before washing.  If machine washing, we recommend you remove the nose wire and put each mask into a separate mesh laundry bag so the ties don't get tangled in other laundry. Keep in mind that machine washing and drying causes fabric to shed lint, so machine washing and drying may reduce the filtering effectiveness of a cloth mask. To minimize this, some wearers rotate between several masks or hand wash their mask in hot water with soap or detergent and air dry. Masks will dry over night.
