Shear Comfort XD1900:

Shear Comfort provides comfort, aids restful sleep and provides protection from skin breakdown. This is because they utilize the natural properties of wool; distributing pressure, dissipating heat and water vapour, reducing friction and shear forces making it a good skin interface. They are also easy to wash and maintain.


Shear Comfort products incorporate Australian Medical Sheepskins, and Shear Comfort XD1900, an innovative and advanced woven wool product that boasts a density of 1900gsm along with 30mm of pile compared to most other woven wool products that only range from 300-500gsm. XD1900 is fabric-backed medical sheep’s wool with a fibre density higher than even the very best natural sheepskins – which gives it superior pressure redistribution properties and improved comfort.


Care Instructions:

Shear Comfort is as easy to care for as your regular clothes. All Shear Comfort sheepskins have the ability to be washed at 80° C, effectively killing bacteria without shrinkage. The sheepskins are warrantied against being washed 50 times at this temperature without any detrimental effects to the item.
