Hospital Nursing Fleece and Minijumbuk SuperWool Mattress Underlays are created from wool, shorn from fine wool Australian Merino sheep. The wool is cleaned after shearing, combed and then knitted into a backing material; using the sliverknit process. Not all " wool-pile " in the market place is made from pure new wool. Down-Under Wool only sells the highest quality pure wool-pile products available.
Wool-pile is an excellent alternative to sheepskin. The advantage that it has over sheepskin is that it can be up to 60" wide and as long as needed. It is machine washable and because it is made from Superwash Wool, can be safely placed in the dryer.
Some of our products have a breathable, waterproof membrane bonded to their back surface. This makes them suitable for use by incontinent clients; protecting the mattress or wheelchair. Urine will not damage wool-pile but will permanently damage most sheepskins. The only sheepskins not damaged by urine are the Australian HiTemp UR Medical Sheepskins.
