SHIMA SEIKI releases knitting data for WHOLEGARMENT® masks

Data is meant to be for cotton masks knitted on SWG041N2, SWG061N2 and SWG091N2, as well as on the rest ofSHIMA SEIKI’s compact WHOLEGARMENT® knitting machines also known as “WHOLEGARMENT® Mini” type machines thatare suited to production of small accessory items, in 15 gauge. Mask data is available for download from the SHIMASEIKI Users’ Site, an archive featuring over 10,000 knit samples for use by SHIMA SEIKI customers

Seam­free 3D WHOLEGARMENT® masks provides superior fit and comfort. Ear straps that are knitted in one­piecetogether with the mask portion offers reduced stress on the ears, and require no further sewing for quick responseproduction.

A filter­pouch is also knitted­in for inserting available virus filters and other filtration fabrics.Knitted cotton masks can be washed and reused repeatedly. It should be noted however that unlike common non­woven surgical masks, knit masks do not have virus­ and pollen­filtration functionality.

Their main use is for preventionof spray from coughing and sneezing, and for reducing exposure to allergens.
