How is Sheepskin Underlay good for health?

Regulate Body Temperature

1. Regulates Body Temperature: Sheepskin products have natural temperature regulating properties that increase heat when it is too cold and reduce heat when it is too hot. This keeps the user at the right temperature according to the environment.

Improve Blood Circulation2. Improves Blood Circulation: Sitting or lying on a sheepskin rug or underlay helps in keeping the body at the right temperature. This temperature regulation helps in promoting better blood circulation throughout the body and keeps the body fit and active.
Support Pressure Points and Relieve Achy Limbs3. Supports Pressure Points and Relieve Achy Limbs: The natural crimped fibers of sheepskin give a cushioning support to the body. They absorb pressure and distribute weight evenly over the body, taking pressure off limbs and relieving aches and pains.
Reduce Friction and Associated Discomfort4. Reduces Friction and Associated Discomfort: The smooth outer layer of sheepskin wool allows fibers to move against each other without friction and accommodate movement. It provides comfort to the bedridden people and protect them against bedsores.
Absorb Moisture for Skin Protection5. Absorbs Moisture for Skin Protection: Sheepskin can absorb one-third of its own weight in water without actually feeling wet. This ability of sheepskin products to wick moisture protects the skin from maceration and weakening of the skin over time.
Repel Dirt and Bacteria6. Repels Dirt and Bacteria: Sheepskin fibers are naturally resistant to the growth of dust mites, mold, and bed bugs. In addition to this, the natural moisture wicking properties of sheepskin fleece prevent the conditions that allow bacteria to grow.
Promote Restful Sleep7. Promotes Restful Sleep: All the above-mentioned reasons make sheepskin a great choice for comfortable and restful sleep. It helps to regulate the micro-climate around beds, allowing users to have a good night sleep and rejuvenate themselves.
