Black Mulberry Silk Face Mask

$37.00


These 22 momme 100% Mulberry silk protective face masks make living in a pandemic as luxurious as it can be. 
   
Why buy a silk mask? It is lightweight, breathable, fashionable, and effective! It also feels very soft on your face for greater comfort if you are wearing for longer periods.
    
Silk is an incredibly fine thread compared to traditional fabrics like cotton, making it sturdy but breathable. This fabric is especially great for warmer climates.
   
Masks are approximately 12" long x 5" wide (including ear straps to their adjustment point). Adjustable plastic slides on each ear strap for comfort. The masks are handmade in small batches in the USA.
   
The Kamoka logo is stamped subtly along the bottom of one side.



Researchers suggest mask fabric combinations involving a fabric with a tight weave, such as heavyweight cotton, or one that can hold a static charge, such as pure silk, are likely very effective at blocking viruses because they provide a double barrier: mechanical and electrostatic. The electrostatic effect serves to suck in and hold the tiniest particles, including viruses, which might otherwise slip through holes in lightweight cotton or loosely woven fabric.

Care
   
Hand wash with a small amount of shampoo or special silk detergent (Woolite, Studio by Tide Delicates) and cold water. You can also run them through a cold hand wash cycle in your washer (with silk detergent) - place in a mesh laundry bag to prevent snags if washing with other items. Hang to dry (recommended) or dry in your dryer on air cycle (never with heat). Do not dry in direct sunlight.
   
 Steam to remove wrinkles from shipment. If you do not have a steamer, you can use a teapot spout (hold mask in front of the steam while gently straightening it).
