Unlike wool underlays this is made from genuine sheepskins. Each sheepskin bed pad consists of pieces from a number of shorn medical sheepskins which are carefully sewn together. For added comfort and luxury they have a lightly padded quilted backing with cotton fabric outer layer.
Rectangle in shape, they are designed to cover the whole bed and have elastic straps to hold them in place. Note the underlay will typically sit around an inch in from the outer edges of the mattress so that it can be kept taut.
The ready acceptance of sheepskin medical underlays and accessories by hospitals and institutions throughout the world is testimony to their wonderful natural healing qualities.
Medical bed pelts help prevent discomfort caused by pressure points or bed sores that occur during long periods of immobility.
A strong tannage ensures that wool fibres remain firmly bound to the leather backing, preventing the shedding and fiber collapse often found in woven alternatives, and ensuring years of restful sleep.
Wool fibres are naturally soft, springy and resilient. Not all sheepskins exhibit the same degree of resilience and density. However those used for our medical bed underlays have been carefully selected by Classic Sheepskins' experienced staff for this specific purpose.
The springiness of the wool pile distributes pressure evenly over the body naturally eliminating pressure points which could cause restlessness. It also allows air circulation thus dramatically reducing the build up of moisture resulting in coolness in summer and warmth in winter.
As wool is capable of holding up to a third of its own weight in moisture without feeling wet to the touch, perspiration is readily absorbed and dissipated by natural evaporation.
Place the underlay directly on the mattress with or without a sheet over it. Ideal for invalids, convalescents, sufferers of backache or arthritic pain.
Our medical sheepskin bed underlays are fully machine washable using a suitable enzyme-free wool wash such as our Woolskin Wool Wash/Sheepskin Shampoo.
Although these premium sheepskin mattress pads will give years of relief and comfort, if they are outside of your budget, our natural pelt-shaped medical sheepskin underlays which use the exact same premium grade of medical sheepskins, but at a considerably lower price, may be ideal.

Mattress pad

Very happy with the service and the quality
It feels like heaven and was well worth the investment although I wish I had known that it would go on sale just a couple of weeks later


We've just moved into the new house and spent our first nights on our new bed last weekend - absolutely delicious! Thank you so much.
