About Us

Down-Under Wool has been the leading supplier of  highest quality Australian Sheepskin and Wool products to the North American market since 1986.  Down-Under Wool specialises in the development and supply of Australian Medical Sheepskin and Merino Lambswool products for the Prevention and Treatment of Pressure Sores, Bedsores and Decubitus Ulcers.

Down-Under Wool, a family business with over 50 years of experience in medical healthcare, began servicing the Home Health Care industry in 1986. Since then, it has expanded its product line to address the increasing need for products that prevent and treat bedsores, pressure sores and decubitus ulcers. The major breakthrough in the prevention and treatment of these issues was made in 1998. A new standard for sheepskin quality and properties was established by "Standards Australia".  It is known as: AS4480.1-1998. This standard ensures the quality and properties of all authentic Australian Medical Sheepskins. These products are recognized by the stamp on the leather- shown below:


More recent advances in wool preparation and sheepskin tanning technology have enabled the development of new products with value added properties. Now it is possible to safely machine wash all of our Medical Sheepskin and Lambswool products.

Down-Under Wool products are now available in Home Health Care stores throughout Canada and in some stores in the USA. They are also available world-wide via our  secure OnlineStore.

All products from Down-Under Wool are from Australia and represent the best available.

Down-Under Wool only imports premium sheepskin and wool products from Australia  and guarantees their authenticity and quality. Our products are backed by clinical trials and years of use in hospitals, nursing and private homes. All items listed on our web site and in our On-line store are on hand in our Niagara Falls (Ontario) warehouse; ready for immediate shipping worldwide.

Medical Sheepskin and Merino Wool have been shown to be effective in reducing the possibility of a client developing pressure sores. Judicious use of our products has repeatedly shown very effective pressure sore prevention for clients confined to a bed or wheelchair.
