The Shear Comfort Cushion-It can be attached by velcro straps to a chair seat or back to provide enhanced comfort. It can improve the comfort of any seat, whether it be an office chair, armchair, car seat or wheelchair seat.
The Cushion-It can also be placed over existing pressure care cushions to improve the feel and effectiveness of the cushion.
For the wheelchair user it provides pressure redistribution, allows greater freedom of movement by avoiding uncomfortable friction and shear associated with vinyl covers and also wicks perspiration for enhanced comfort and skin protection.
Made with natural properties of fabric-backed medical sheepskin wool, unique to Shear Comfort, ensures that comfort and protection is provided. The moisture dissipation qualities of the wool ensure any perspiration is effectively wicked away from the skin.
All Shear Comfort products are machine washable and are guaranteed against deterioration for up to 50 washes. The size measures 46cm x 55cm.
Please note: As these are hand made sometimes there is a small dispatch delay of 1-2 weeks as they need to be made up.

Shear Comfort is as easy to care for as your regular clothes.
All Shear Comfort sheepskins have the ability to be washed at 80° C, effectively killing bacteria without shrinkage. Our sheepskins are warrantied against being washed 50 times at this temperature without any detrimental effects to the item. For best use we recommend using Shear Comfort Wool Care Shampoo with conditioner.
Shear Comfort products may be tumble-dried warm, without exceeding 60° C. To air-dry Shear Comfort overlays, hang fleece-side down and away from direct sunlight or heat sources.
To air-dry Shear Comfort footwear or targetted protectors, release all fastenings and place fleece-side down on a drying rack and away from direct sunlight or heat sources.

Specific Washing instructions
As our Shear Comfort Original items are backed with natural sheepskin, they require a slightly different washing technique from the XD1900, which is backed with fabric.
Please follow the washing instructions for your chosen item.
Shear Comfort Natural Sheepskin
It is recommended that Shear Comfort natural sheepskin items are washed with the Shear Comfort Wool Care Shampoo with conditioner, which contains antibacterial tea tree oil and is effective against dust mites. If an alternative is used, it must be a non-ionic liquid detergent which has no enzymes, phosphates, peroxides, alkali or bleach.
Domestic washing instructions
On a gentle cycle, wash your Shear Comfort product with approximately 20ml of Shear Comfort shampoo or approved detergent. Water must not exceed 80°C.
Industrial Washing instructions
Wash on a gentle cycle wash for approximately 10 minutes in hot water up to 60°C using Shear Comfort shampoo or approved detergent.
Rinse for approximately 3 minutes in warm water at approximately 35°C
Wash on gentle cycle without detergent for approximately 8 minutes in water up to 80°C for thermal disinfection.
Rinse for approximately 3 minutes in cool water.
Shear Comfort XD1900
Shear Comfort XD1900 does not require special shampoo, and can be washed with normal household detergent up to a temperature of 80°C, although you can use Shear Comfort Wool Care Shampoo to condition the wool and utilise the fungicidal and matricidal properties of the shampoo.
XD1900 products can be laundered in the same way as Shear Comfort Natural sheepskins.
