Elastic Widths and Suggested Uses Chart

Braided Elastic is a perfect choice for making homemade face masks to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 as recommended by the CDC.

Braided Elastic is the Perfect Choice For Fabric Face Masks.

When you are constructing fabric face masks, choose 1/8" or 1/4" braided elastic for your ear loops. It is quick and easy to secure your mask using this elastic. Parallel ribs on braided elastic make it flexible, and cause it to narrow when stretched. It is light-weight but durable, making it an excellent choice to withstand multiple washes and daily use.
