The Circadiance SleepWeaver Advance Soft Cloth Nasal CPAP Mask is a breakthrough in CPAP therapy, which is revolutionising the industry and causing people to reassess their views on using CPAP treatment. The radical mask has replaced both the materials and concepts from all previous masks and has rebooted the approach to CPAP mask design. It brings a new level of comfort, stability and satisfaction.
The SleepWeaver uses an entirely new concept in CPAP mask design. It was designed around balloon physics. When a balloon is inflated, the pressure inside is spread perfectly across the entire surface, meaning there are no pressure points and no areas with more pressure than any other. This same principle is used in the design of the SleepWeaver CPAP mask. The pressure from your CPAP system inflates the mask, and the pressure is spread across the surface of the mask and your face. As the mask inflates, the fabric adapts to your face's shape and contours, creating a perfect seal. This eliminates any pressure points on the face, and also prevents leaks as there is no single point around the seal with more pressure than any other.
Because the seal is created by the pressure from your CPAP system, this means that it no longer relies on the headgear to maintain the seal. The SleepWeaver's headgear is simply three straps designed to keep the mask in place rather than prevent leaks or provide stability, and so minimal pressure is required. This all equates to the most comfortable, and least obtrusive CPAP mask ever created.
Advantages of the SleepWeaver Soft Cloth CPAP Mask
The SleepWeaver has five distinct advantages over traditional CPAP interfaces.
The SleepWeaver features a series of holes on the front of the mask for exhalation. The design means that breath escapes through a wider area, minimising noise and preventing the concentrated stream of air that often leads to whistling. This also allows the exhaled air to disperse more naturally, making exhalation feel more comfortable. Fabric also naturally absorbs sound, rather than the plastic traditionally used which is more likely to create it.
2. Less pressure from the headgear
The design of the SleepWeaver means that the seal is created by the pressure from your CPAP system, rather than the headgear. This means that the headgear does not have to be too tight, as it is only used to hold the mask in position, rather than to additionally improve the seal's tightness. So as well as the face having no pressure point, there is also very little tension placed around your head.
3. More sleeping positions
The minimal design of the SleepWeaver naturally lends itself to a wider range of sleeping positions, as it is similar in shape to many nasal pillow CPAP mask which allow for side sleeping. However, the cloth design means it can mould and adapt to pillow contact without losing seal – a common problem with even the most flexible CPAP masks. You can sleep on your back, side or even front, knowing the pillow contact is no longer a problem.
4. No skin irritation
The cloth material used for the SleepWeaver is both soft and breathable, meaning it continues to feel comfortable and natural even over a prolonged period of time. Instead of becoming more uncomfortable over time, it actually becomes almost unnoticeable like a typical item of clothing. The use of fabric means it doesn't become sticky or cause allergic reactions. The mask is entirely latex and silicon free.
5. Reduced air leakage
The balloon inspired design means that no one area of the inside of the mask has any more pressure than any other, which helps to prevent leaks. As the mask inflates, the fabric naturally adapts to the shape and contours of your face to ensure a perfect and comfortable seal. Because the seal is formed by the pressure from within the mask, rather than the headgear fittings, it can maintain this seal when you move or shift, even when this leads to pillow contact.
New small size gives greater choice!
Originally only available in a single size, the SleepWeaver Advance now has a Small size option for those with finer facial features. Generally speaking, most female CPAP users will find the Small provides a better fit, while most men will want to choose the regular. The small is only available in beige, and the regular only in blue. Hopefully the colour of the size you need is the one you prefer - but if not remember to choose practicality over style when ordering!
How to fit the SleepWeaver Advance - 2 minute Quick Tips video
The SleepWeaver masks are made from cloth, and therefore the technique for getting them to fit varies greatly from a typical CPAP mask. Below are a couple of short videos to help you get the SleepWeaver Advance working for you. The first is specifically for the SleepWeaver Advance, while the second is for the SleepWeaver range in general. Please watch both, they're only a couple of minutes in length each but should provide invaluable information to help you get that "just right" fit.

Yes, in fact there are two, both of which are below. The first is specifically for the SleepWeaver Advance, while the second is for the SleepWeaver range in general. Please watch both, they're only a couple of minutes in length each but should provide invaluable information to help you get that "just right" fit.Yes - the SleepWeaver Élan Nasal CPAP mask will work with all CPAP machines.The SleepWeaver Advance Nasal CPAP mask originally only came in one size, regular. This would fit most users. However, recently, they have introduced the SleepWeaver Advance Nasal CPAP mask in small. The small sized SleepWeaver Advance Nasal CPAP would be suitable for those with small facial features. Alternatively – if you think you have larger facial features – you could opt for the SleepWeaver Élan Nasal CPAP mask as opposed to the SleepWeaver Advance Nasal CPAP mask, as this comes with the additional option of a large size.Similarly, to the SleepWeaver Élan nasal CPAP mask and the SleepWeaver Anew Full Face CPAP mask, we recommend washing the SleepWeaver Advance nasal CPAP mask by hand, with a mild non-abrasive detergent in cold or warm water – and then rinsing thoroughly. Please also be aware that the SleepWeaver Advance Nasal CPAP mask, should be hung up to dry, and never put into a drier.The pressure settings recommended for the SleepWeaver Advance Nasal CPAP mask are between 4-20 cm/ H2O.The SleepWeaver Élan Nasal CPAP mask is the updated version of the SleepWeaver Advance Nasal CPAP Mask. As well as a new headgear design, the Élan also comes in an additional Large Size. Is there a similar cloth CPAP mask to the SleepWeaver Advance Nasal CPAP mask, but for Full Face users? Yes – SleepWeaver have now brought out the SleepWeaver Anew Full Face CPAP mask. More details about the SleepWeaver Anew Full Face CPAP mask can be found on its individual product page.The SleepWeaver Advance Nasal CPAP mask, just like other masks within the SleepWeaver range, works in a similar way to balloon. The SleepWeaver Advance’s cloth inflates, which creates a secure and comfortable seal, as the black inner lining is pushed onto the CPAP users nasal area. The SleepWeaver Advance, and other masks within the SleepWeaver range, are different to most CPAP masks available, which are made from solid materials. Although the SleepWeaver Advance Nasal CPAP mask, and other mask within the SleepWeaver range can take a few nights to become accustomed do – most users report that the SleepWeaver Advance Nasal CPAP mask, and other masks within the SleepWeaver range, are the most comfortable nasal CPAP mask they have ever used.

5 Item(s)per pageThe only mask that ever worked for me Review by David
Value Quality Website Information Comfort Ease of UseI took me two years and a lot of expense trying different masks, before I found the sleepweaver and discovered I wasn't a mouth breather. The masks have a limited life - I get through about three a year - but that's not too bad for what they give to me.(Posted on 2 July 2018)
Hurrah! No eyebags! Review by Jaybee
Ease of Use Value Quality Website Information ComfortIt took me a week or so to get the adjustment just right. I think start loose and tighten up gradually is the best way, and do watch the video on fitting even if it seems a bit obvious. Once I got the fit right tho it's worth the effort. I can't say it never leaks, on occaision if my face is right in the pillow I do get a bit of a leak but most of the night no problems. The big thing I find is that I don't wake up with horrendous swollen eyes or strap marks, again it's personal experience and I can't say the problem has gone away completely just that it's much much better. Considering it's a relatively cheap mask I would say it's definitely worth a try and I'm sticking with it after trying several of the more expensive masks, some of which were better in one aspect or another but they all caused swollen eyes. As to the longevity of the mask I'll have to wait and see but it seems well put together.(Posted on 16 March 2018)
Not suitable for higher pressures ? Review by Tim
Ease of Use Value Quality Website Information ComfortMy pressure is 17.5cm and I normally use a mirage II nasal mask.(Posted on 23 February 2018)
I tried this and immediately realised 2 things. At my pressure it leaks, a lot, in fact it's unusable. I even confirmed with the videos it was fitted corractly.
Secondly the exhalation relief ( a line of tiny holes in the cloth ) is woefully inadequate. As soon as the air flow begins you can feel it inflate your lungs, face and every other available space within your body. Breathing out is noticably difficult.
My nose is of normal size so I can only guess that this mask just isn't suitable for higher pressures.
The mask itself is little more than a peice of very expensive cloth and I'd be concerned how long it would last.
I returned it as I'd taken out the 'Mask Fit Insurance' - just a shame it cost me £14.99 to find out after a few minutes it wasn't suitable.
Most comfortable mask I have tried. Review by Kaz
Ease of Use Value Quality Website Information ComfortThis will be the fourth or fifth Sleepweaver advance I have purchased, this is the most comfortable mask I found and now that it comes in a small version is easier for me to create a seal. I would not change to another product unless it had cushioned sides which would prevent my waking up with indentation lines on my face. Which as I get older take longer to disappear each day.(Posted on 15 November 2017)
