Mask Makers : COVID-19 Materials
If you are looking for items to make masks, we have a few items that might be of help.
Do you have elastic?
It comes in 1/4 Braided elastic & 1/8 Braided elastic sizes. We have both white and black available.
Do you have thread?
This is a newer item for us. We have 40/2 weight thread in 3000-yard cones for $3.50 in white and black colors. You can select and purchase this on our Thread Product Page.
We carry nose clips as well.
Nose clips are embedded within the mask and allow for curvature around the nose. For those that wear glasses, these are a game changer. We have adhesive backed nose clips that simply peel and stick. We also have an adhesive nose clip that requires heating (via a heat gun or iron). This adhesive is activated at about 100-degrees Fahrenheit.
How much is elastic?
We sell elastic by the yard. 1/8th inch elastic is .35 cents and 1/4 inch is .40 cents per yard. 1/4 Braided elastic & 1/8 Braided elastic. Bolt prices for the 1/4 inch are $80 per bolt plus tax and shipping (if required). Bolts of 1/8th inch are $52.50 for the 125 yard bolts and $70 for 200 yard bolts, plus tax and shipping (if required).
How many yards are on a bolt?
We have both 200 and 125 yards bolts of 1/8th inch elastic. A bolt of 1/4 inch elastic is 200 yards. You can enter this amount in the quantity during the purchase process.
