Sheepland 100% British Sheepskin Chair Covers
Sheepskin shearlings have been used for years in the relief of pain in pressure points, when patients need to stay for some time in one position. They are particularly useful for some elderly persons as they are so soft and dense they cushion the body from the pain of any surface, wheelchairs, mattresses and even armchairs. These rugs are being used in both Care Homes and nursing homes, as well as being available now to everybody that feels they have a need.
They can be used simply on a chair for warmth and comfort, or on a bed, or in a wheelchair, they truly are fantastic. The natural qualities of the skin will stop sweating, increase warmth and even help to keep cool in the Summer. Pure Sheepskin, come back to the real thing Thermal Control Sheepskin rugs are used throughout the year. Wool is a natural insulator and will trap warm air keeping temperatures stable and the body warm. The natural properties of wool have been recognised for centuries. As a natural fibre it absorbs moisture, which, when released, keeps the body cooler and more comfortable. Using sheepskin can avoid unnecessary clothing, frequently a contributing cause to irritability and discomfort.
