- Medical Grade Sheepskin Overlays
Our XD1900 material conforms to the Australian Standard AS4480.1 for medical sheepskins.
- High density wool for added comfort
The Shear Comfort Overlays made from XD1900 use high density wool woven at 1900g per sqm for pressure redistribution and added comfort.
- Healthy microclimate for the skin
Wool takes up to 30% of its weight in water vapour without feeling moist. The air trapped between the wool fibres allows heat and moisture to dissipate.
- Can aid quality sleep
Wool, being a natural material, gives a quieter more comfortable night’s sleep than when lying on a plastic-based product. In addition, a study in 1984 reported that a wool underlay decreased restlessness and improved sleep quality.
- Machine washable up to 80 degrees Celsius
The fabric-backed material on which the wool is woven makes it easy to wash up to 80 degrees Celsius – for a hygienic wash.
- 50 washes guaranteed
Shear Comfort overlays have a warranty up to 50 washes when following the manufacturer’s washing instructions.
