Pressure Relief Bed Fleece

It's vital that effective pressure relief can be provided to those who need it, but it's also important that their comfort can be maintained while they sleep. The Pressure Relief Bed Fleece is made from 100% pure new wool and has the unique ability to absorb perspiration and keep the skin dry. This allows the skin to breathe more effectively, which is very important in high-pressure areas of the body.

Please note, if you find your fleece to be slightly itchy when it arrives we recommend washing it on a wool cycle before use to slightly soften the fibres.

What's Included?

  • 1 x Pressure Relief Fleece

Key Features of the Pressure Relief Bed Fleece

The key features and benefits of the Pressure Relief Bed Fleece are:

  • Made from 100% pure new wool with a woven polyester backing
  • Absorbs perspiration keeping skin dry and enables skin to breathe
  • One inch deep pile distributes pressure evenly
  • Covers are pre-treated and can therefore be washed at up to 40°C and autoclaved
  • Can be washed up to 50 times and still provide softness and comfort
  • Makes an excellent 'interface' on beds and chairs

How Much Does a Pressure Relief Bed Fleece Weigh?

Please view the table below to see the exact weight related information for each fleece size:

Size Weight
Small 300g
Medium 650g
Large 1.3kg
Extra Large 1.7kg

Real Wool for Superior Comfort

Unlike polyester, real wool is exothermic and can absorb up to 33% of its own weight in moisture without feeling damp. What's more, the wool will not feel cold even when damp, making it easy and comfortable to sleep on. The bed fleece also has a gentle touch that prevents friction burns from abrasive materials.

Great for Pressure Relief

The bed fleece is ideal for the relief and prevention of pressure sores and pressure ulcers. Real wool has a remarkable natural resilience and the cover's real lamb's wool high-density 1" deep pile distributes pressure more evenly giving immediate comfort relief. 

Which Types of Mattresses and Beds Are Suitable?

Unlike other similar fleeces, the Pressure Relief Bed Fleece is suitable for use on top of a range of different mattress types and bed styles. For a few examples of compatible mattresses, please view the list below:

  • Adjustable Air Mattresses
  • Air Beds
  • Hybrid Mattress
  • Memory Foam Mattresses
  • Sofa Beds
  • Spring Loaded Mattresses
  • Water Beds

Where Should I Place the Fleece?

For the best results when using the Pressure Relief Fleece, we recommend using the fleece below your normal bed sheets. This reduces the frequency of washing necessary and can also improve the user comfort, without impinging on the pressure relief provided.

Great for a Range of Applications

Incredibly versatile, the bed fleece great on beds, as well as on chairs, sofas, wheelchairs and any other sitting or lying area. It can be used to cover the entire sleeping area or specific parts of the sleeping area where the body is most prone to pressure sores..

Sizes of the Pressure Relief Bed Fleece

To help you get the size that's right for your needs, the bed fleece is available in four sizes. Use the table below to find the size that's right for you:

Fleece Size Dimensions 
Size 1 45.72 x 45.72cm (18 x 18")
Size 2 68.5 x 76cm (27 x 30")
Size 3 68.5 x 152cm (27 x 60")
Size 4 91 x 152cm (36 x 60")

Is This Product Sheepskin?

While this fleece is made with genuine lambswool, it features a woven polyester backing, and not sheepskin. This allows the user to enjoy the soft and comfortable benefits of wool, with the affordability and washability of other materials.

How Do I Wash My Thorpe Mill Bed Fleece?

We recommend washing your Pressure Relief Bed Fleece on a "wool cycle" when necessary. For best results:

  • Wash on a wool cycle with a wool friendly detergent to eliminate any odour or smell before use
  • Tumble dry on a low heat setting or air dry
  • Do not bleach in any circumstances
  • For effective drying, we recommend line drying your Pressure Relief Fleece

If your machine does not have a "wool cycle" setting, we recommend washing your fleece using a cold water cycle to prevent damage and loss of material.

This has been a brilliant piece of comfort for my 101 year old Mother whose mobility has been really compromised following a fall. It is lovely and soft.
I bought the larger size, and so, apart from sitting on it, it goes right up her back.

Hi Fiona,

Many thanks for taking the time to leave a review and share your thoughts with us. We really appreciate it.

It's always nice to hear when our products are able to enhance comfort and minimise pain in those who need it most. We're really happy to hear your mother has found our Pressure Relief Bed Fleece to be nice and soft. It's designed with a long back to assist in exactly this fashion. We wish her all the best and a speedy recovery.

Kind regards,

Sheepskin pad for sore heels
Wednesday, 20 April 2022  |  Sarah

Following hip surgery I needed relief for sore heels, this pad helped a little, not as good as expected after reading the previous reviews. Found it made my feet hot. Went back to resting my legs on a pillow with my heels then off the bed
