This is achieved by weaving natural wool to a fabric backing, and is not to be confused with artificial sheepskins created from synthetic ‘wool.’ We use natural wool, and treat it to ensure it can be repeatedly washed up to 80°C. Plus, because XD1900 has no leather backing, it can be washed with normal household detergent.
- Natural Skin Microclimate Control - What your Shear Comfort™ overlay does is to provide the ideal microclimate for a good sleep, looking after temperature and perspiration regulation, with the excellent air redistribution properties of a wool product.
- Improved Sleep Quality - As far back as 1984, Dickson showed that wool underlay decreased restlessness and improved sleep quality. Individuals with fibromyalgia, suffering from diffuse chronic pain and tender muscles, showed significant pain reduction and improved sleep quality when using wool overlays (Kiyak et all, 2009).
- Silent Pressure Care - In a residential or medical care facility, Shear Comfort™ Overlays are a lower cost pressure care solution and remove the discomfort and noise experienced with plastic-based options, such as plastic air-filled overlays or alternating pressure mattresses

Specific Washing instructions
As our Shear Comfort Original items are backed with natural sheepskin, they require a slightly different washing technique from the XD1900, which is backed with fabric.
Please follow the washing instructions for your chosen item.
Shear Comfort Natural Sheepskin:
It is recommended that Shear Comfort natural sheepskin items are washed with the Shear Comfort Wool Care Shampoo with conditioner, which contains antibacterial tea tree oil and is effective against dust mites. If an alternative is used, it must be a non-ionic liquid detergent that has no enzymes, phosphates, peroxides, alkali, or bleach.
Domestic washing instructions:
On a gentle cycle, wash your Shear Comfort product with approximately 20ml of Shear Comfort shampoo or approved detergent. Water must not exceed 80°C.
Industrial Washing instructions:
Wash on a gentle cycle wash for approximately 10 minutes in hot water up to 60°C using Shear Comfort shampoo or approved detergent. Rinse for approximately 3 minutes in warm water at approximately 35°C Wash on a gentle cycle without detergent for approximately 8 minutes in water up to 80°C for thermal disinfection. Rinse for approximately 3 minutes in cool water.
Shear Comfort XD1900:
Shear Comfort XD1900 does not require special shampoo and can be washed with normal household detergent up to a temperature of 80°C, although you can use Shear Comfort Wool Care Shampoo to condition the wool and utilize the fungicidal and matricidal properties of the shampoo.
XD1900 products can be laundered in the same way as Shear Comfort Natural sheepskins.
