Our mattress overlays are fitted with four elastic straps. If you will be using 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.
An added bonus: Sheep's wool keeps menopausal women with night sweats, dry!
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.
