We want you to stay safe and healthy so we are discounting our 100% cotton fabric to less than $10/yard so you can make masks for yourself and your family.
Please note that this is not the same quality cotton you have been buying at Walmart. This cotton is much more tightly woven and will feel a little stiffer at first. It is, however, better quality and works better for masks according to the research done by the Manufacturing Development Center at the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine, part of Wake Forest Baptist.
"The best-performing design was made of two layers of high-quality, heavyweight “quilter’s cotton” with a thread count of 180 or more, and those with an especially tight weave and thicker thread such as batiks. A double-layer mask with a simple cotton outer layer and an inner layer of flannel also performed well, he said.
The inferior performers were made of single-layer masks or double-layer designs of lower quality, lightweight cotton."
We have so far donated over 150 yards of this quality cotton to local Charlotte organizations and the results and feedback have been only positive.
