Australian Medical Sheepskin – Hi Temp
This lambskin is the highest quality medical sheepskin available and provides maximum cushioning and support. Warm in winter and cool in summer, the wool pile allows air to circulate under the skin. The Hi-Temp medical sheepskin is tanned in Australia to Australian Standard AS4480.1 and is made from Australian Merino sheep. It is machine washable in water up to 80C to achieve a high level of disinfection. With a dense wool pile and wool length of 30mm, this sheepskin maximises pressure relief and is suitable for hospital or nursing home use. Sheepskin reduces shear and friction on the skin and is a cost-effective method of preventing pressure wounds. This sheepskin can be tumble dried to a temperature of 60C. Size is approximately 100 x 65 cm. Available in dark green only. GST exempt.
We can cut pressure pads from Hi Temp skins, these are 50 x 50cm for placing under the affected area. Select from drop down menu.
Also available are two Hi-Temp sheepskins stitched end to end. This is ideal as a bed underlay where head-to-toe support is needed. Select from drop down menu.
Washing Instructions for Medical Sheepskin AS4480.1
We recommend only washing the sheepskin when absolutely necessary. The less frequently it is
washed the longer it will retain softness in the wool. For regular maintenance we recommend a
shake outside and some time in sunshine to reduce the presence of dust and dust mites. This should
only be done when the sheepskin is dry.
Hand wash or machine wash on gentle cycle using wool detergent (max water temperature is 80°C).
Hang to dry in shade away from direct sunlight.
Important: Detergent with alkali, hydrogen peroxide, phosphates, bleaches and enzymes should not
be used at any time as they will irreversibly damage the leather of the sheepskin. Use a gentle wool
detergent as you would use for a woollen garment.
Medical sheepskins may also be dry cleaned

|Wash||Warm Water 30°C||20 min||Gentle||Wool detergent|
