Sheep's Wool regulates the body temperature; it has a body heat of its own and keeps your muscles warm all night long; as a result, it is not so stiff in the morning.
Sheep's Wool is moisture-absorbent. It absorbs 30-40% of its weight in moisture and releases it into the air. If synthetics surround you, the body will become damp and the skin vulnerable. Lying in moisture creates the perfect environment for skin to break down and for bacteria to thrive.
Sheep's Wool is anti-microbial and anti-bacterial. Our comfort pads offer pressure redistribution, offloading, and bed sore prevention.
If an area of the body is reddened, you usually have a window of 24-36 hours before skin breakdown. If you place wool underneath the body, usually the coccyx, within 12 hours, you will see a 180 to the area.
The highest quality 100% pure Sheep's Wool Fabric comes in four wool pile densities: two non-health densities of 550 grams and 700 grams & two health densities of 850 grams and 950 grams.
FOR NON-HEALTH PURPOSES:
Sheep's wool pile density is 550 grams or 700 grams. We recommend the 550 gram for those who are happy with their current mattress and the 700 gram for those who like their mattress but need more cushioning/softness.
FOR HEALTH PURPOSES:
We have two health wool densities: 850 gram (1" wool pile) and 950 gram (1/2" wool pile woven between 1" wool pile). The 950 gram is exclusive to Soul Comfort Sheep's Wool & Hemp. We also recommend the 850-gram and 950 gram for those who aren't happy with the cushioning/softness of their mattress.
All mattress overlays are fitted with four elastic straps. If you will use the mattress overlay for a hospital bed, please add that information in the comment section below, as we add two extra elastic with velcro straps. These are added on both sides of the overlay, where the health beds' crease lines are, to stop the overlay from buckling and creating added pressure points.
A bonus: Sheep's wool keeps menopausal women dry with night sweats!
Backing Hercosett-Resin treatment for full machine wash-ability:
Wash at 70°C (158 F) (Infections Control Canada) and tumble dry up to 85%, the residual moisture will not be felt and will disperse quickly on its own.
