From the beginning of time people slept on a sheep skin and in fact we went back to using a square of sheepskin to alleviate the problems suffered by long term patients of pressure (or bed) sores. The pressure relieving properties of wool have always been understood and valued by the medical profession.
The Wellbeing Merino Wool Underblanket is fitted over your mattress and held firmly in place by an elasticized skirt. The thickness of the blanket is about 25 mm and interwoven in the blanket is a conductive carbon fibre and silver thread. This is very beneficial when the cord that comes with the blanket is touching the ground as it earths the body and removes the harmful build up of electrostatic charges.
The Wellbeing Merino Underblanket brings the following Benefits to the user:
- You have a comfortable heat level in bed. You are at your own body temperature. Even electric blankets are a thing of the past.
