Sheepskin is known for its health benefits being hypoallergenic, naturally water-resistant, and fire retardant, as well as extremely soft, dense, and supportive. ​​Many choose sheepskin for bed sores, as its density reduces pressure and friction in the bed and maintains correct humidity. Sheepskin medical rugs are suitable for hospital or at-home use to help alleviate pressure points and give rapid relief from lying in one position for long periods of time. 

Our sheepskin medical rugs, pads, and cushions are very dense—there is always a layer of air below you when you lie or sit on them. The wool also combats moisture build-up, providing comfort for long periods of staying still.

In our office, we all have a sheepskin to sit on, and they make a big difference in keeping us supported and warm without overheating.

The Wool Company also offers sheepskin for wheelchairs. 100% medical lambswool Oeko-Tex certified medical sheepskin pad to provide comfort and support for the wheelchair user.

How do you wash a medical sheepskin?

If there are any minor spills or stains, we recommend spot washing your medical sheepskin with a damp cloth. Sheepskins can be carefully machine-washed if necessary on a wool setting using a wool-recommended detergent. Allow drying naturally and stretch the sheepskin back in shape while it dries. Here are full easy medical sheepskin care instructions.
