All of our gaiters & masks are completely 3-D knitted with absolutely no cutting or sewing of the masks. This means there are no sewing needle penetration holes through the fabric of our gaiters for greater security and safety = improved Isolation between wearer and others. Sewing holes can typically the weak link In masks and can spread/separate, wear and break open as well as being a point of abrasion/irritation against the skin/scalp and catch/pull hairs from one's head as well as catch jewelry.
Designed to be comfortable against the skin our technology = better moisture transport, better thermal properties then Polyester while still having great long-term wash & wear properties as compared to polypropylene which is sensitive to heat (drying). With good and proper care our gaiters should be comfortable, beautiful and fully serviceable for a very long time - measured in years.
Our masks are 100% made in North Carolina USA.
3 layer technology | All of our Neck Gaiters are made with three (3) distinct and separate fabric/yarn layers.
Layer 1) EXTERIOR FABRIC - Typically Copper infused into the Nylon polymer during yarn extrusion, not topically applied and will not wash off or wear off. The Cupron copper is built into the DNA of the Nylon polymer during compounding and yarn extrusion.
Layer 2) MIDDLE FABRIC LAYER - Typically Nylon Spandex (chlorine resistant type) yarn as a catch/blocking layer between the Interior and Exterior activated AM/AV yarns.
Layer 3) INTERIOR FABRIC LAYER - Typically our Full Spectrum Hemp Extract (FSHE) infused into the Nylon polymer during yarn extrusion, not topically applied and will not wash off or wear off. The FSHE is built into the DNA of the Nylon polymer similar to the copper during compounding and yarn extrusion. Other AM/AV permanent materials (Copper, Silver, Zinc, etc.) could also be utilized upon request. FSHE is excellent for the health and vitality of the skin and has been proven in recent lab test to kill the bacteria that causes acne.
