Medical Sheepskin Overlays

Our medical sheepskin overlays, made from Shear Comfort XD1900, come in a range of sizes to fit a baby’s cot up to a Queen size bed. They can be used in a chair or on a bed to provide supreme comfort. The sheep’s wool is very comfortable, soft, and thick which feels great on the skin.

Medical Sheepskin Overlays are ideal for use in bed or on a chair to provide supreme comfort. 

  • 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.
