    Quite a dilema :!:

    I was searching on the internet for material that you can see through but essentially blocks most dust out.

    See, my mini shetland has very sensitive eyes that are usually always weeping goop. Unfortunately, his eyes are bigger than his stomach and there for he has always either been kept of saw dust or just plain dirt to regulate him off and on grass so he doesn't pick up weight.

    The vet comes out and clears his ducts every now and then and I wash his eyes out with saline solution inbetween. In summer I can toss a fly mask on him and nothing irritates his eyes, but in winter it is extremely dry over here and I can not avoid the dust!

    So I thought it would be a fantastic idea to invent a dust mask for him but I have no idea what material I would need to buy. I was hoping someone on here has had this experience or has a great idea for me

    I would try a really thin satin or a thin tightly woven nit. I know the satin can be very hard to find, but they make it where its almost see through. I don't think I have ever heard of a thin nit but if it exsists it would be something you could use. Sorry this isn't very helpful but its just ideas.

    Yea thanx actually the satin is a good idea. I was thinking of stockings but you can't really see through those. Only problem is how flimsy it will be.
