Benefits of Fleece
Why sheepskin is good for your health
Sheepskins have many natural health benefits - providing support for pressure points and achy limbs, regulating your body temperature to improve circulation plus being kind to skin and anti-bacterial . Recent research shows sheepskins can even help promote more restful sleep. A sheepskin rug or hide can be a great option for those who are bedridden or recovering from injury to help prevent bedsores.
Sheepskin is supportive to relieve aches and pains
Sheepskins have naturally crimped fibers that form a cushioning support for your body. Scientists believe this is because each wool hair, or fiber, contains a three-dimensional spiral shaped crimp that acts like a miniature spring.
By absorbing pressure without flattening out and distributing weight evenly over the body, sheepskins take pressure off limbs to help relieve aches and pains.
Sheepskin can regulate your body temperature
The natural temperature regulating properties in wool helps to reduce heat when it’s too hot, and increase heat when it’s too cold, so you stay at the right temperature.
In adults, keeping at the right temperature when sitting or lying down on a sheepskin can help promote better blood circulation.
Pets also love sheepskin for several reasons. Cats and dogs alike like the natural smell of sheepskin, the softness of it, and that it keeps them at an ambient temperature. That is why raw sheepskin hides and sheepskin seat pads are great for pet beds! Have a dog or cat that likes to scratch your couch? Get a sheepskin hide or seat pad to put on the couch or on the floor to provide cushion and protection for your furniture.
