Will a Sold Out fabric be returning?
Most of the fabrics listed are part of my fabric collection, and I have been collecting for over 20 years, so are not replaceable. Other fabrics have been sourced from Australian suppliers and are only available in small quantities. So once a fabric has been listed as sold out it wont be coming back.
To make sure you don't miss out on a fabric about to sell out you can check out the Last Chance page here.
Are they medical grade masks?
These are not medical grade masks as they are completely cloth. They are not a substitute for surgical masks. They are not designed to protect against airborne viruses.
Continue to maintain social distancing and avoid touching the front of the mask while wearing. Please wash the mask daily.
How long does it take for the cloth mask to be dispatched?
Each mask is Made-to-Order which allows you to add the above extras to your order, to help get the best fit for you. As they are Made-to-Order they do take a little bit longer, and are dispatched 2-3 weeks after purchase date.
