Our primary goal is to prevent Pressure Sores in people who are confined to a bed or chair. Pressure sores are painful and preventable in most cases. Our premium quality Australian Wool products have been proven effective in clinical trials and are being used successfully around the world.

Down-Under Wool works with the major manufacturers of Medical Sheepskin and Merino Wool Products in Australia. Because of this, Down-Under Wool is the leading supplier of highest quality Australian Medical Sheepskin and Merino Wool products in Canada and the USA.

Down-Under Wool began servicing the Home Health Care industry with Australian Medical Sheepskin and Merino Wool products back in 1988. 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 prevention and treatment came about in 1998. It was then that "Standards Australia" created a new standard for sheepskin quality and properties. It is known as: AS4480.1
