    I notice that these face masks loop around the ears. I am struggling to find face masks that tie up or have two bands that can go around the back of the head. The reason for this is when you hace to wear glasses and hearing aids an extra thin behind the ears is extremely uncomfortable after a while.

    Hi Kate, thank you for the round-up. It’s so good to see the enterprise out there and such a range of good looking solutions for a functional (and necessary) item. Because of my professional interest in knit I am particularly impressed by the fab Foxology 3d knitted mask. Can I add to this list the masks made by volunteer sewers throughout the UK who are sewing thousands of masks, scrubs and gowns for the NHS and other frontline workers. I’d like to finish with a special thank you to the many UK companies that are donating materials and services such as cutting and delivery to this ongoing cause.
