The Kids Chrysalis face mask is the same as the Adult Chrysalis mask but sized to perfectly fit younger people. It’s a cloth mask designed to provide a barrier against the COVID-19 coronavirus based on scientific research to determine the design and materials. Because any mask is only as good as the commitment to wear it, these masks are designed to be comfortable as well as fun!
Because proper fit (especially at the nose and cheeks) is critical to protection, the Chrysalis for Kids facemask comes in 2 sizes. Use the chart below to determine the best size for your child. If your child doesn’t fall into one of the sizes illustrated, please provide their measurements (A & B) in the Notes section of your order.
Choose from two mask styles:
- Ear-Loops – no Neck Tie: Add ribbon ties to the bottom of the inside layer to hold the mask snug and keep it on you when you want to slip off the ear loops for fewer lost masks.
- Ear-Loops with Neck Tie: Adjustable 1/4″ soft elastic loops go through each mask side and around your ears (a soft silicone bead allows you to fit the mask perfectly to your face. Ties are attached to the bottom of the inside layer to hold the mask snug and keep it on you when you want to remove ear loops.
The Kids Chrysalis mask is two layers of high-thread-count cotton with a pocket to insert a kid-sized Safety Silk Insert. A recent study shows that this combination of tightly woven cotton and natural silk, filters out 80% to 99% of particles. The cotton acts as a mechanical barrier to particles, while the silk holds a static charge that serves as an electrostatic barrier.

Why the Chrysalis Face Mask is your best choice:
- The mask is constructed to hold up after repeated machine laundering in hot, soapy water; the Safety Silk Filter should be hand-washed to preserve the static charge;
- Choose from a beautiful selection of high-thread-count cotton prints in broadcloth or flannel;
- Designed to fit snug at the nose and cheeks while being roomy inside and under your chin so you don’t feel confined;
- A center pleat accommodates the shape of any face with no seams in the mask area that could allow the virus to penetrate;
- A pliable nose wire sewen into the top seam can bend both back and down to conform perfectly to your nose and cheeks;
- The inside layer is 100% white cotton (205 tpi) – chosen to be soft and breathable.
Wearing a mask is the responsible, unselfish thing to do, and I want to do my part to make it easy for people to do the right thing.
The minimum price just covers my actual costs to make the mask, including one Safety Silk Insert and a fair price to the seamstress who puts quality ahead of everything. The minimum price option is because I don’t want price to keep you from having the protection this mask provides for your child and those around them. If you can afford to pay more, every dollar over the minimum makes it possible for us to offer these masks for those who can only afford the minimum price. Our goal is to get as many people as possible wearing the best protection and to make the masks attractive so everyone wants to wear one.
