    Sheep's Wool maintains the optimal body temperature, providing constant warmth to your muscles throughout the night. This natural material is highly moisture-absorbent, taking in 30-40% of its moisture weight and effectively releasing it into the air. Unlike synthetic materials, which can lead to dampness and skin vulnerability, Sheep's Wool prevents moisture buildup and creates an unfavorable environment for bacterial growth. Our comfort overlays effectively redistributed pressure, reduce strain, and avoid bed sores.

    The presence of inflammation is usually accompanied by a short timeframe of 24-36 hours for the development of skin breakdown. By positioning medical sheep's wool beneath the body, particularly the coccyx, within 12 hours, there is typically a 180-degree improvement to the affected 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.

    Sheep's wool pile density is 550 grams or 700 grams.  We recommend the 550 grams for those who are happy with their current mattress and the 700 grams for those who like their mattress but need more cushioning/softness.

    We have two healthy wool densities: 850 grams (1" wool pile) and 950 grams (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.

    When using our Medical Sheep's Wool Overlay on a double, queen or king bed, please indicate in the comment section if it will be used on a hospital bed. We will include two additional elastic straps with velcro on both sides of the overlay to prevent buckling and relieve pressure points. Single or twin sizes come with extra elastic Velcro cross bars by default. All of our mattress overlays include four fitted elastic straps on each corner.

    Why Choose a Medical Wool Overlay :

    Sheep wool mattress overlays have gained recognition in the medical field for their numerous benefits. These overlays, made from high-quality sheep wool, offer unique value propositions that contribute to the comfort and well-being of patients. Let's explore the specific advantages that make sheep wool mattress overlays a valuable addition to medical settings.

    Moisture Absorption

    Sheep wool has exceptional moisture absorption properties, making it an ideal material for mattress overlays in medical environments. The natural fibers of sheep wool can absorb moisture without feeling damp, keeping patients dry and comfortable throughout their stay. This feature is particularly beneficial for individuals who may experience excessive sweating or have conditions that cause night sweats.

    Bacteria Resistance

    Sheep wool possesses inherent antibacterial properties, making it resistant to the growth of harmful bacteria. In medical settings, where cleanliness and hygiene are of utmost importance, sheep wool mattress overlays provide an additional layer of protection against bacteria. This resistance to bacterial growth helps maintain a clean and safe environment for patients, reducing the risk of infections and promoting faster recovery.

    Temperature Regulation

    Sheep wool is known for its excellent insulation properties, allowing it to regulate body temperature effectively. In medical settings, where patients may experience fluctuations in body temperature due to illness or medical procedures, sheep wool mattress overlays can help maintain a comfortable and stable temperature. This feature promotes better sleep and overall well-being, contributing to the healing process.

    Pressure Relief

    Patients who are bedridden or have limited mobility often experience pressure points and discomfort. Sheep wool mattress overlays offer excellent pressure relief, distributing body weight evenly and reducing the risk of pressure ulcers. The soft and cushioning nature of sheep wool provides gentle support, alleviating pressure on sensitive areas and enhancing patient comfort.


    Sheep wool mattress overlays are known for their durability, making them a cost-effective choice for medical facilities. With proper care, these overlays can withstand frequent use and maintain their quality over time. The long-lasting nature of sheep wool mattress overlays ensures that medical institutions can provide reliable and comfortable bedding options for their patients without the need for frequent replacements.

    In conclusion, sheep wool mattress overlays offer a range of benefits that make them highly suitable for the medical field. From moisture absorption and bacteria resistance to temperature regulation, pressure relief, and durability, these overlays contribute to the comfort, hygiene, and well-being of patients. Incorporating sheep wool mattress overlays into medical settings can enhance the overall patient experience and support the healing process.
