Therapeutic Gel Pad Cut Out Sheepskin with Dri-Lex - a brilliant gel pad featuring Acavallo's innovative dri-lex fabric to ensure your horse remains at a comfortable temperature under the saddle.
Dri-lex is a fabric that combines hydrophobic and hydrophilic fibers in a composite structure that is unique in the horse industry. The inner layer stays dry while the outer layer acts as a micro-reservoir for sweat, and the moisture is literally vaporized. Dri-lex fabrics are engineered to enhance natures work - they rapidly move moisture through performance equipment to keep the body dry and comfortable.
Man has been using sheepskin since ancient times because of it's comfort and protective qualities. Most sheep offer 3000 fibers per square inch and each fiber is like a tiny shock absorber that makes sheepskin probably the best emollient padding in nature. The Acavallo wool is selected in order to have a very high density. Sheepskin will not give off an electrical charge, where as synthetic materials are a 100% insulator for electrical energy. Sheepskin is able to absorb sweat immediately and can submit it into the air seven times faster than synthetics. Machine washable (30°C) or by hand using water. Remove any dried mud or sweat with a brush before washing. Rub some human hair conditioner into the sheepskin before washing. Do not tumble dry. Do not expose to direct heat.
