The Day Chair Overlay is designed for those individuals who spend most of their day seated in an armchair.

The Day Chair Overlay is designed for those individuals who spend most of their day seated in an armchair, and who have skin that could be at risk of damage from heat or perspiration build-up, or from shear forces. The Day Chair Overlay is made from Shear Comfort extra density XD1900 sheep's wool with benefits such as shear and friction reduction, microclimate control, and pressure redistribution.

On a chilly day, the user is kept cosy, being insulated from draughts around the cushion and the back of the chair. The Day Chair Overlay is available in two versions, one with straps and without. The straps can be used to fasten the overlay onto the chair to prevent it from slipping.

Shear Comfort XD1900 

Fabric-backed medical sheep's wool, unique to Shear Comfort

XD1900 is medical sheep's wool unique to Shear Comfort, with a fibre density higher than even the very best natural sheepskins - which gives it superior pressure redistribution properties.

This is achieved by weaving natural wool to a fabric backing, and is not to be confused with artificial sheepskins created from synthetic ‘wool.’ We use natural wool, and treat it to ensure it can be repeatedly washed up to 80°C. Plus, because XD1900 has no leather backing, it can be washed with normal household detergent.  

All Shear Comfort products are machine washable, and guaranteed against deterioration for up to 50 washes.

size: 50 x 140 cm
