Down-Under Wool is a family company founded to help people who are confined to a bed or wheelchair. Medical sheepskins have long been used for such care but have been limited in their use because of their poor washability.
In 1998, the CSIRO developed a technique for laundering and disinfecting Australian Sheepskin. This has led to a range of products which have been instrumental in reducing and even eliminating pressure sores. Clinical trials have shown their effectiveness; resulting in widespread use around the world.
Down-Under Wool imports these certified Australian Medical Sheepskins and products made from them. Their quality and comforting properties remain unsurpassed by any other available in the current marketplace.
Down-Under Wool has also been instrumental in having Australian manufacturers produce other wool products for pressure sore prevention.
