Making your Sock Mask is easy!

Simply use the template and instructions provided below to create your own sock mask. Turn this into a fun activity and share it on your socials using the hashtag #sockmask. Let’s educate and encourage people to wear masks and practice safe social distancing so that we can return to normal as quickly as possible.

Need a little help? Let’s break it down, step by step.

sock-mask-tutorial-step-one

Step one.

Use your best guess or use the guidelines on the template provided to cut your sock to the desired mask width. Note: the template provides guidelines only and may need to be adjusted slightly to fit your face.

Step two.

Next slice the sock in half on the opposite side to the heel.

Step three.

Next open the sock up and fold it over towards the top edge. Now make two cuts on each side of the sock leaving approximately 2cm from the top and side edges. These will be the ear loops.

Step four.

Open up the sock and voila — a perfect sock-mask! Fold over the edges for a more snug fit ensuring that the mask keeps you protected* by covering your nose and mouth.

Remember: When you’re done using the mask send it back to us along with 10kg of your other textiles for recycling via our Clothing Recycling Collection.
