Overheating

Shear Comfort can help with sleeplessness, overheating and discomfort for individuals who find it hard to regulate their body temperature in bed, and are therefore prone to sweating or feeling cold during the night.

Medical Sheepskin has been proven to increase heat transfer to and from the skin, radiating heat from warmer areas to cooler ones, and vice versa. Shear Comfort overlays can aid the body’s cooling process and prevent body overheating by improving air circulation around the skin as air moves freely through the wool fibres.

Avoid the 'foam sweats' 

Memory foam and other foam mattresses can sometimes trigger excessive sweating due to reduced air circulation between the skin and the mattress. Shear Comfort improves air flow to the skin, while keeping the softness and support of your mattress.

Isn’t wool meant for keeping warm?

Although most people associate wool with keeping warm, wool actually helps to regulate your body temperature in all conditions. This is because of the superior heat-transfer properties of wool, which cause heat to travel from warm areas to cooler ones, cooling the body in summer and helping it stay warm in winter. Wool worn in bed in hot conditions (29°C) has been shown to increase sleep quality, and promote faster sleep onset (Umbach, 1986)
