Where to buy fabric to make a face mask online
If you're looking to make your own face mask, here's where you can shop for fabric online.
The World Health Organization has recently changed its health advice in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. It is now recommended that masks are worn in public places where social distancing is not possible. In Ireland, face coverings must be worn on public transport and should be worn in public spaces where it’s difficult to social distance. With these restrictions in place, it can be tricky to find stores with masks still in stock.
If you are unable to get your hands on one, another option is to make your own. To get you started, we’ve rounded up a list of stores stocking fabrics that can easily be turned into face coverings and listed them below.
