SleepWeaver Elan - The latest in cloth CPAP mask design
The SleepWeaver Elan Soft Cloth CPAP Mask from Circadiance offers the most advanced fabric design to date. The SleepWeaver Elan follows on from the original SleepWeaver and the highly popular SleepWeaver Advance, providing another alternative for those who dislike having to wear rigid plastic masks.
The SleepWeaver Elan is all about freedom; freedom to move and freedom to sleep how you want. The forgiving nature of both the design and the fabric means you can change position how you choose with less chance of losing the seal. The new 90° elbow lets you exit the tubing in whichever direction you wish - above the head, toward the chest or to the side.
The SleepWeaver Elan works in the same way as the Advance; it is inflated by the CPAP machine's air, creating a cushion that gently pushes towards the face, creating a soft, flexible and secure seal as it does so. The broader but shorter design frees up your light of sight for unimpeded reading or television viewing, while providing a greater level of stability.
What makes SleepWeaver CPAP masks "Skin-Friendly"?BREATHABLE - Any moisture from the skin or from the CPAP humidifier wicks through the cloth and evaporates into the air stream of the SleepWeaver mask. This keeps the area between the mask and skin dry.
CUSHION OF AIR - The mask forms a fabric balloon so that the portion that contacts the face is a cushion of air, rather than a silicone or polyurethane gel cushion.
NO RIGID FRAME - The is no rigid frame to press against your face. This lets you roll over on your pillow or sleep face down.
NO PRESSURE POINTS - The elastic fabric on the SleepWeaver interface conforms to your facial features.
LIGHTWEIGHT - SleepWeaver masks are typically 50% lighter than conventional CPAP Masks.
The SleepWeaver range of Skin-Friendly CPAP masks are the softest, lightest and natural-to-wear masks available, and are perfect for those who are find conventional plastic masks uncomfortable.
Unsure which size is right for you? Choose the Fit Pack!
If you have not tried the SleepWeaver Elan before, we we recommend instead purchasing this SleepWeaver Elan Fit Pack. This has all of the sizes included to ensure you get the right one, along with a lightweight hose extension not included with the individual sizes. Additionally, the Fit Pack has Mask Fit Insurance available, allowing you to return it if you find it is unsuitable. However if you have already used the SleepWeaver Elan and are looking for a replacement, then you can order the specific size you need here.
For those already using the Elan and are looking for a replacement, you can simply order the mask in the size that you have settled on, making it more cost-effective. Though remember, you can purchase the cushions (the fabric part without the straps or plastic elbow) by themselves here, which provides even better value.

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 Elan working for you. The first is specifically for the SleepWeaver Elan, 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.
- Mask-Fit Insurance
Mask Fit Insurance is available for this mask
If you are considering trying this mask for the first time, you can order in confidence using Mask Fit Insurance.
Mask Fit Insurance costs £14.99 for nasal masks and £19.99 for full face masks, and allows you to return this mask for a refund if unsuitable.
You have 28 days from the dispatch date to assess the mask and notify us that you are unhappy with it for any reason. You can return it and have it refunded (we must receive it back within 7 days of being notified).
The fee for the insurance is non-refundable once the mask is opened, nor are any outgoing postage costs. The mask itself will be refunded in full.
A pre-paid returns label will be included for customers in the UK. We strongly recommend getting a proof of postage (which is free) as returns not received cannot be refunded. For overseas customers, the return postage will need to be arranged by the customer and this cannot be reimbursed.
CPAP masks purchased without insurance cannot be returned/refunded once opened for hygiene reasons, as explained in our returns policy.
Mask Fit Insurance must be ordered at the same time as the mask in question, and cannot be added retroactively.
Intus Healthcare reserve the right not to honour any orders containing multiple masks purchased with Insurance; please instead choose which mask you feel is most suitable and select the size required as per the sizing gauge (if applicable). Should you subsequently determine a different mask or size is required, you can of course return the first and order the other.
If you need any further information, please use the chat function (if available), or contact us.
