A new study at Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine is finding that certain fabrics can filter much smaller particles, too. By comparing different textiles—thick vs. thin, woven vs. knit—they discovered that heavy-weight cotton with a tight weave and a thread count of 180 or higher performs surprisingly well in filtering small airborne particles. Avoid knitted or elastic fabrics.
