I purchased this underlay for my Aunt who lives in Residential Care. It took her a little while to get used to as she found the edging hard on her skin. However, she has now informed me that she is very happy, and finds herself sleeping in quite often.
We are very happy with the product and service.
The fibres are the perfect lenght to provide cushion comfort. The lenght is perfect, as a sleeper who turns in the night I dearly wish there was a wider one in the same length. Full bed size looks amazing but not needed.
Warm - relaxing - enabling me to sit in comfort- this rug seems to relieve pressure on my body - very happy with it and a must for arthritis sufferers thank you - very efficient service here within 48 hours
I had a fall resulting in a cracked rib and torn ligaments and soft tissue damage in my back. There was only one position I could sleep in, that was sitting up which became very uncomfortable and tender. I purchased the sheepskin underlay 90 x 60 cms size and it made such a difference to my comfort. Now I'm up and about again I have it on my chair and it makes it very enjoyable to relax in comfort and I'm sure it will be lovely and cosy in the winter months too. A bit costly but as I have taught my children, "Buy cheap and you buy twice".
