**We understand the urgency of receiving Medical sheepskins as quick as possible, that's why we aim to send out all Medical orders within the same business day via Express Post for Free.**
**If buying for someone who is incontinent, we recommend purchasing 2 underlays and our Woolskin Shampoo available here. This allows for one to be washed and dried while the other is being used.**
I initially ordered the rectangular product but they were low on stock and were not comfortable with quality. I received a phone call explaining the situation and opted for the traditionally shaped hide. The wool density is significant, comfortable and supportive. Sizing - little longer than piece initially selected and perfect for the job. Really delighted with product and shipping was extremely prompt.
I bough the mat for my mother's bed in her nursing home. She is unable to walk and it is very hard for her to change position in her bed. She was so thrilled with the mat and the softness and consequential comfort. I then proceeded to buy the same mat in different dimensions for her wheelchair seat. She is thrilled with that too.
I bought the medical sheepskin for my elderly mother on recommendation from fer doctor to help prevent pressure wounds. It has been wonderful!
Very happy with the product. Great service thanks.
I bought this for my sister and she assures me that it is the best thing ever. She highly recommends this product. The service was amazingly quick too.
